This award winning Itoh hybrid is pricey (over $100/plant), but worth the investment. The large (seven to eight inches in diameter), semi-double, gold flowers have striking pink and scarlet centers. The flowers are born on sturdy stems and have a lemony fragrance. They bloom for a longer period of time than herbaceous peonies. The vigorous plant has a shrub-like nature and is great as a landscape plant.
