Where do the intersectionals or Itoh hybrids come into
the picture. I have forgotten what they are a cross

I will be placing an order with Rick on a wide
selection of more varieties for OH but I also will be
getting about 10 to try here in LA. 
The old Saunders and Daphnis hybrids are tempting but
I really don't know how they would do here. Any

I of course want to try ostii and rockii. Both are
gorgeous flowers. How big are the flowers? Not that it
really matters. 

I also second your choice of books. Al Rogers book is
really nice and in depth. It is actually listed on
sale on Amazon at the moment for $16.97 for the
paperbak version when it is released. I just looked.
The release date is the middle of August. Al also has
emailed me several times when I had certain peony
questions and was always ready to help with info as
are Jim W and Rick Rogers (Al's son, right?).

Another nice book is "The Book of Tree Peonies" by
Gian Lupo Osti, List Price of $45.00. He has a lot of
the rockii and ostii types listed. In case you haven't
figured it out, ostii was named after him. 

Jim's book is listed also for $23.77.
