Peony Al's Choice

Peony 'Al's Choice'


Paeonia Itoh "Al's Choice". An Itoh peony, with a twist. Selected by Allan Rogers, author of 'Peonies' who had over 60 years experience of peonies and had been growing them since childhood.

A taller variety with a spreading habit, that reveals its strong growt potential. The flowers are a delicate yellow with a few brushstrokes of red and magenta. A tuft of stamens surrounds the striking green white-tipped carpels. The flowers open sequentially, ensuring a long flowering season. Like most Itohs, this variety does not need staking and the foliage will be an asset to your garden until the first frost.

Registered in 2004.
