Intersectionals, also known as intersectional hybrid or Itoh hybrid peonies, are truly the next generation of peonies. These strong-stemmed plants are a cross between a tree peony and a garden peony. They look spectacular, and are easy to grow. Think tree peony flower and foliage on a garden peony stem that can be cut down in the fall.
