The most beautiful flower in my garden right now is the ‘Bartzella’ Itoh peony. The plant, in its third year in the ground and is covered with large (8″/20cm), colorful, attention grabbing blossoms. No plant in the garden has elicited more delightful comments and questions about where to obtain one. I have become a believer; I planted my third Itoh peony this spring and am on the lookout for more.
It cries out to be the star in this week’s In a Vase on Monday offering.
My Arranger suggested that it can stand alone and needs no other flowers to get in the way of admiring ‘Bartzella.’
My thanks to vacationing Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her invitation to join her in this weekly offering of items from our gardens. Please visit her site and see what she and others have in their vases this week.
