Paeonia ‘Lollipop’ is an Itoh peony – an unusual hybrid between a herbaceous peony and a tree peony. It’s one of several Itoh varieties, all of which are hardy and easy to grow. Plants form an upright bush habit, with lush green leaves, from which large, semi-double blooms appear in spring. Flowers emerge yellow and develop purple stripes as they mature.
