The peony is an immensely rewarding plant for gardeners giving a profusion of magnificent flowers throughout a long season. It is also thornless and relatively untroubled by pests and diseases. Many of the species peonies have the additional bonus of being scented and with over 100,000 varieties of herbaceous peony available there is sure to be a colour to suit every planting scheme. In this authoritative book on the subject, the striking peonies and relatively new Itoh Hybrids are prominently featured providing a feast of fascinating new plants for collector and gardener alike.
