DescriptionThe fragrant and floriferous Morning Lilac produces an abundance of delightful, 8" blooms all over its top and sides. These beauties give the borders a pop of vibrant, fuchsia-purple colour, accentuated by darker purple and white stripes. In the centres shine bright golden stamens. Blooms earlier than most varieties—extend your peony display by planting Morning Lilac with the later blooming Bartzella or Kopper Kettle.
Bringing together the tree peony's strong, woody stems and vigorous habit, and the herbacious peony's showstopping blooms and disease-resistant foliage, Itoh varieties might just be the perfect peonies. With up to 50 blooms in a season, you'll get plenty of time to enjoy their exquisite flower form and unique colouration—on full display as they perch right on top of the foliage. Paeonia
