Itoh Peonies

Huge blooms boasting layers of luscious petals are the calling card of the Itoh peony.  These exceptional perennials are a cross between tree and herbaceous peonies, featuring the best attributes of both.  Sturdy enough to support the abundant flowers without staking, they are small enough to fit into most beds and containers.  Itohs have 6”+ diameter flowers in double, semi-double, and frilly petals, that bloom over a longer period of time then other peonies, from late spring to early summer.  Once established each plant can produce up to 50 blooms.

New this year is the ‘Visions of Sugar Plums’, featuring spectacular single flowers of soft pink blending to deeper pink on the edge and plum colored flares toward the center.  ‘Sequestered Sunshine’, also new to Squak Mt., has large yellow flowers.  The popular ‘Kopper Kettle’ with shades of coppery orange-red and yellow will be back along with many others in a wide range of delicious colors.  Select your favorite colors at Squak Mt. today.
