This is one of the best red Itoh peonies we've found. Its huge flowers have deep scarlet petals and golden-yellow anthers—fabulous in fresh floral arrangements. Itoh peonies combine the best peony traits. They were originated by crossing herbaceous and tree peonies. The result is a dense, rounded plant only 2-3' tall and wide, with a great abundance of large 7-9" blooms. They are borne on strong, non-flopping stems atop handsome foliage that stays attractive all season. Even better, once they mature, they bloom weeks longer than either parent, producing more than 50 blooms over an extended six-week period from late spring into early summer. And they take more heat and cold, extending the area in which peonies can be enjoyed as far south as Atlanta, where they are reported to do well if given afternoon shade and water in dry spells. Deer tend to avoid. Paeonia x 'Scarlet Heaven'

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.
