Mislabeled Itoh at Home Depot
Yesterday, I got excited at HD when I went in because I saw a beautiful red peony with a sign in front that read Itoh Peony, perennial, $29.99. It would have been a bargain at that size and that price. But as I looked more closely, it was obviously a Red Charm herbaceous hybrid peony. When I told the sales staff, they didn't really seem to care or understand the difference between herbaceous, itoh, and/or tree peonies. Just be careful with how the plants are labeled. Some people interchange the terms hybrid peony with intersectional or Itoh peony. They are not the same thing.
