What a glorious feeling when these brilliant blooms appear. They have a sort of sunset coloration—the big, semi double blooms start creamy yellow and take on coral blush tones as they mature. They're also accompanied by a soft perfume that'll bring even more charm to your fresh-cut arrangements. Itoh peonies like this, are a cross between herbaceous and tree peonies, so they are perfect in borders. Their abundant, huge tree-peony blooms are joined by a cold hardy, lush herbaceous habit that'll keep your border beautiful from spring well into fall, for many years to come. You can also use Singing in the Rain as a container focal point, or make a splash with a mass planting. Attracts butterflies; not deer. Paeonia x 'Singing in the Rain'
