The spring charm of peonies

My name is Zarko Mudrovcic, and my garden is situated in Marija Gorica, 30 kilometers from Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, in the southeastern part of Europe. Today I am sharing some beautiful pictures of my favorite peonies (Paeonia hybrids, usually Zones 3–8).

Itoh peonies (also called intersectional hybrids) take their name from Japanese nurseryman Toichi Itoh, who first hybridized herbaceous and tree peonies to create these beautiful, vigorous hybrids.
