'First Arrival' Itoh Peony was introduced by Roger Anderson of Wisconsin in 1986, but the intersectional Peonies have only become well known fairly recently. 'First Arrival' produces large ruffled pink flowers in late spring and early summer over clean green foliage. The Itoh Peonies combine the best characteristics of both parents, with mildew resistant leaves and compact tight habits. Their long bloom period makes them a welcome addition to perennial borders.
