Golden Treasure Intersectional peony pair
Two of our favorite yellow blossomed intersectional or 'Itoh' hybrid peonies; 'Bartzella' and 'Garden Treasure' offered together for a striking effect in any garden. Both of these hybrid peonies are later blooming. For us they usually bloom in June, finishing out the peony season with the last of the lactiflora herbaceous peonies.
Bloom time: These showy hybrid peonies bloom in our USDA zone 6a garden in the first or second week of June.
Zone hardiness: Proven in USDA zones 4-9.
Plant sizes: 4-5 'eyes' or buds with proportional roots. This size plant will most likely flower in its second spring after planting, though many did bloom the first year.
When we ship: Late fall/winter 2020 or early spring 2021 to USDA zone 4-9.
