As these incredibly showy, large blooms mature, the astounding, creamy–pink color turns to creamy–white with a lavender picotee edge. They are fragrant, and make stunning cut flowers. Magical Mystery Tour is beautiful in a large pot, but like all Itohs, it is also an extraordinary garden performer with long–lasting, lush foliage. Once mature, it's also impressively floriferous. Because of its tree peony ancestry, the stems become woody and strong, holding the blooms up nicely without staking. Itoh peonies are a little harder to find than herbaceous and tree peonies. However, we've worked hard to increase our stock with plenty of especially stunning varieties like Magical Mystery Tour to choose from. Paeonia X itoh

Peonies have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before the first bloom—but the wait is worth it. They are heirloom quality. Let them grow undisturbed and they will bring joy to you and your loved ones through the decades.
