Well, it was just two weeks ago that the FFF blog was a yellow tree peony, but here's another one. In this instance flowering about two weeks later is a Itoh hybrid, a cross between a tree peony and a herbaceous peony, so it's not a shrub but has a fairly robust form, sturdier than the standard herbaceous peony, and yellow flowers! This one was planted three years ago and this year is a three foot diameter mound. It flowers at the same time as herbaceous peonies, but unlike herbaceous peonies that tend to have flop-pot flowers, flowers literally too big for their stems. But the Itoh holds its flowers up quite nicely, and you would almost think this is a tree peony except it dies back over the winter although it may be a little woody at the base. What's not to like? Sorry TPP was less than enthusiastic about the flowers, they were smaller last year and fewer.
What if we done the Schrodinger's cat experiment?
