I just received my EBay order today, I ordered Itoh Peony "Yellow Crown", but the plant looks like tree peony, and I had one of the Michigan Bulb Itoh peony is the same, with woody branches , never blooms for me before, so I don't know what variety it is.
Do any one have grown Yellow Crown or any other Itohs have experience the same thing before???

Itoy peony can have woody branches, on the other hand, there is a yellow Japanese tree peony called oukan (黄冠), can also be translated to "Yellow Crown", You better ask the seller.

Thanks! Littlebin
I will be thrilled if it turns out to be tree peony" oukan", but the seller said it's Itoh peony. I have 12 different varieties of Itoh peonies, only one with woody branches (NOID), all others died back down to the ground. I' m curious about how many varieties are like that, it can handle the cold weather better? Maybe.

You're right! Frank
I guess we have to wait for the spring to find out. I didn't paid much for it. And hope my other woody Itoh will blooms for me too.

Whatever it is, it looks like a very huge root and plant. Hope both of your Yellow Crowns bloom for you next year, Yan. I too am curious about Yellow Crown.

Frank, I hope that your Yellow Crown will bloom too.
