Paeonia Itoh 'Bartzella'

Item #49335


Remarkable Variety, Reasonable Price

Fill garden and vase with huge double blooms redolent of fresh-cut lemon!

Thankfully more affordable than the $1,000 a division it was priced at as late as 1999, Paeonia Itoh 'Bartzella' is unsurpassed among Peony for beauty, fragrance, or sheer,�floriferousness! Featuring zesty yellow, double blooms measuring 9 inches across, it would be remarkable if it didn't have the vigor to produce more than 80 flowers a season on a single plant.

The magnificent flowers, whorled like a rose, have creamy meringue outer layers with a more rich, yellow center, where hints of a red base become visible as the bloom unfolds. The most popular cut-flower, Paeonia Itoh 'Bartzella' last for several weeks in the vase, their scent remaining as fresh and enticing as their petals. A single plant will provide enough flowers to keep your vases full.

Blooming in between the Tree Peonies and their Herbaceous cousins, Paeonia Itoh 'Bartzella'offers,�shrubby habit, fragrance, luscious bloom color and larger bloom size, excellent resistance to Peony Blight, tolerance of heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil, and extended bloom season. Reaching,�about 3 feet in height and width in sun or light shade, it is not a target for rabbits or deer, and is quite long-lived, blooming for decades.

Typically cast as a cut-flower, Paeonia Itoh 'Bartzella' blooms hold their color in the garden for weeks.

Talk about robust, energetic, ready to grows! We planted the Bartzella less than a month ago. It is ahead of older plants and is developing a FAT bud, already! All 3 of the J & P peonies came in outstanding condition, with abundant signs of new growth. Of the 3, the Bartzella is getting the most sun right now. Can't wait to see it!
