What itoh peonies do you have that you will be looking forward to see blooms for the first time this spring? I do so hope to see a bloom on Strawberry Creme Brulee this spring. When I got it 3 years ago, it was just a small root the size of a carrot. Another one that I am looking forward to is Halleigh's Hallelujah. Although It has been blooming for the last 2 years, the blooms have been all singles. It is supposed to be a full double so I hope to see some fuller blooms this year.

Here are some that that I am hoping will bloom for the first time for me:

Impossible Dream
Rosy Prospects
Unique
White Emperor
Pastel Splendor
Norwegian Blush
Royal Blush
Watermelon Wine
Sonoma Amythyst
Caroline Constabel
Chief Black Hawk

The last two were acquired in the late Fall, and I'm fairly certain they won't bloom.

I had moved my Yankee Double Dandy, Garden Treasure, and Yellow Doodle Dandy in late 2015. I think I only had one bloom in 2016. They all looked happy in their new spots so I am hoping to get blooms this Spring.

My Strawberry Crème Brulee hasn't bloomed yet either, Karen. It did look really nice and healthy last year, hope we both have 1st blooms next spring! Although I don't really care if they're first year or 10th year--I'm just ready for peony blooms!! This winter seems incredibly long already and it's barely started....

Do you have any other Itohs that might bloom for the first time this spring, Karen? What about everyone else? If so list it and let's build some anticipation!

Where is your list, Liz?

I thought of you when they showed the nasty weather out in Colorado!! Yuck!

I am enjoying your photos, Craig. Your gardens must be beautiful. Which Itoh is currently your favorite? I can't decide between New Millennium or Joanna Marlene.

Those are beautiful LG! I can't think of a favorite, I too am looking forward to seeing Joanna Marlene and New Millennium bloom for the first time. Also, Chief Black Hawk and Takara.

I like Takara, too. I bought mine potted from my favorite garden center. It is one of those three gallon Monrovia grown plants that are shipped in bud to garden centers in the Spring.

That is a beauty LG!
I bought mine off of eBay from a nursery in Jersey, I sure hope it's true to it's name. Nice looking roots.
I also look forward to Caroline Constabel but that may take a few more years. Whistling

I can't wait until we have peony blooms, Craig. I normally have Tree peonies in April. It depends on the frosts, which I hope we are spared this year.

Tease away..... I know you enjoy seeing my blooms though!!! They are appetizers for your own feast to come!! And then I enjoy all of yours when mine are gone by the end of May.

I have resolved to take more photos this year. I scroll back through my photos and can't believe I only took one or two of a variety when it was blooming.

Liz you are not allowed to travel during your bloom season because we did not get a lot of pix from you. Exception made for the Peony Convention where you did a stellar job of getting great photos with names.

I'm planning to be home the entire bloom season this year, LG! And I hurt myself even before the bloom season--as I left to go to Texas we had a really bad snow storm. I didn't cover any expect the most fragile with strict instructions on when they were to be uncovered that was ignored by my husband....

Still trying to decide if I want to go to next year's convention. I'll definitely go to the following year's but not sure about Raleigh. Anyone here know of any really good gardens that will be looking nice the first week of June near Raleigh?

Liz, I know you obsess over your peonies like I do. I hope that the weather cooperates this year and we all have a great bloom season.

I don't know what is planned for Raleigh. You might contact Adrianna Feng, as I think she is leading that event. She is really nice. I met her on the garden tours at the Louisville Convention.

Liz, I was going to recommend the Sarah P. Duke Garden on the Duke University campus, however, I see it's already one of the tours for the APS Convention.

We go by it all the time when we visit our son on campus, he's been and says it's wonderful. I'll have to check it out this spring, we've visited Durham multiple times, but have not gone to visit the gardens.

Southern Peony website and FB page has told me that she will be compiling her list of Intersectional Peony price comparisons. I have found it to be a good resource. Keep an eye out for it all you Itoh Peony lovers.
