Scarlet Heaven is striking and one of the best red Itohs due to its strong presence in the garden when it is in full flower. A ring of fiery yellow stamens in the centre set off the scarlet red blooms with every flower gathering attention! Itohs have a larger range of colours, longer flowering periods and present a bushier more floriferous plant. They carry foliage similar to that of the Tree Peony however die back to ground level just as their herbaceous cousins. Itoh’s are more likely to flower much better in warmer and more temperate climates. They also have a higher tolerance to disease.
