Itoh Peony First Arrival

New

Itoh Peony First Arrival

One look and our garden staff were hooked! First Arrival is, by far, the prettiest pink peony we've seen to date. Not only is it attractive, but it is also an outstanding garden performer. A unique Itoh type peony, it enchants many a garden visitor with semi-double blooms that grow to 6-8" wide with a fluffy form and a lavender-pink hue that stands out against the dark foliage. Though the flowers are striking in their loveliness, the plant is also a winner in our eyes. Sporting a well-formed, compact habit, these vigorous plants fit into small spaces nicely and withstand spring weather with ease.
