Gently ruffled petals emerge pink before aging to a pastel shade on 'First Arrival,' an early blooming Itoh Peony. The large 6-7” blossoms have dark maroon-pink blazes at the center, the better to highlight a tuft of sunny stamens. The flowers are held on sturdy stems that are great for cutting, and they emit a perfume as light and pretty as springtime.

Hybrids between Tree Peonies and herbaceous Peonies, known as Intersectional or Itoh Peonies, are superb, long-lived plants with the large, exotic blooms and refined foliage of Tree Peonies, but with stems that die back to the ground in fall like herbaceous Peonies. Making crosses between these two groups was a horticultural feat that proved remarkably difficult to accomplish.
