The Gold Standard for Master Gardeners!

Exquisite Paeonia Produces Amazing Lemon-Yellow Flowers!
This Itoh Hybrid, which�sold for more than $1,000 a division as late as 1999,�is today�mercifully much more affordable! Yet�it remains unsurpassed among�Peony�for beauty, fragrance, or sheer�floriferousness. With blooms measuring 9 inches across, fully double and redolent of zesty lemon,�'Bartzella' would be remarkable�without the vigor to produce more than 80 flowers a season on a single plant.

The flowers are simply magnificent, whorled like a rose but�larger and longer-lived.�The outer layers are a creamy meringue,�dee[er yellow toward the center, where hints of a red base�are visible as the bloom unfolds.�Arguably the finest�cutflower,�'Bartzella'�hold up resiliently�for several weeks in the vase, their scent remaining�fresh. Just one plant will perfume the garden and keep your vases full.

An intersectional or Itoh hybrid, a very special class of Peonies with parentage from both Tree and Herbaceous species,�'Bartzella' bloom between the Tree Peonies and their Herbaceous cousins,�providing a range of superior traits: shrubby habit, fragrance, luscious�color and larger bloom size, excellent resistance to Peony Blight, tolerance of heat, humidity, cold, and poor soil, and extended bloom season.

Growing to 3 feet�in height�and�width in sun or light shade, it�is untroubled by rabbits or deer, and is quite long-lived, blooming dependably for decades. Peonies flower in late spring or early summer, and often need plant supports to hold up their bounty of huge blooms. Although most frequently�displayed as�a cutflower,�'Bartzella' are�delightful�in the garden, the flowers holding for weeks. Zones 3-8.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits.

Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants.
