Red and Pink Itoh Hybrid Peonies in Full Bloom

The Luoyang Tree Peony Garden is still bursting with color as the late-blooming Itoh “intersectional” peonies are showing all their glory. They are a cross between tree and herbaceous peonies. Garden manager Julian Leung gives them a good drink to keep them happy as the weather grows warmer and drier. Colors now blooming range from vibrant red to pale pink and white, and many plants still have buds ready to pop open. A few late-blooming tree peonies are also in bloom just north of the Itoh variety.

Other plants contributing color to the garden now include the bright yellow lilies around the pond, which also is covered with water lilies. Come for a walk soon with family, friends, and your camera.
