The Itoh is the dream peony—a coveted hybrid from herbaceous and tree peonies that's much harder to obtain. We've been building up our selection of these extraordinary hybrids, and Duchesse de Lorraine is a particularly exciting find. This is a breakthrough Itoh—no other yellow variety has such full, petal-packed double blooms. They appear on strong stems, and produce a delightful fragrance. Once Duchesse de Lorraine matures, it'll provide tons of blooms for both the garden and cut flower displays. The foliage will remain a lush green backdrop for your perennial garden bed through the season, and the plant itself will last decades in the right spot. It is excellent in containers, borders and mass plantings. The blooms attract butterflies and are deer resistant. This très jolie variety is named for the Lorraine region in France. Paeonia x 'Duchesse de Lorraine' PP26907

Peonies have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before the first bloom--but the wait is worth it. They are heirloom quality. Let them grow undisturbed and they will bring joy to you and your loved ones through the decades.
