Peony Strawberry Crème Brûlée is pink Itoh Peony made by the Peony Breeder Don Smith. Who's Don Smith? Don Smith is a retired Research Physicist who worked for the Air Force Research Laboratory for over 37 years conducting experiments to measure the infrared emissions from the upper atmosphere utilizing cryogenic interferometers flown on research aircraft, balloons, rockets and the Space Shuttle. For the last 18 years he has also devoted many hours to hybridizing intersectional hybrid peonies. Since his retirement in Oct. 2003, He has worked exclusively as a serious amateur breeder of intersectional peonies with the goal of improving the flower quality and expanding the flower type and color range of the intersectional hybrid group. Don Smith believes that he has made significant progress towards this goal, but more work is still left to be done. Intersectional Peony Hybrids, also known as Itoh Peonies, named in honor of Toichi Itoh, the originator of these unique hybrid peonies. They are representative of the progeny of crossing or hybridizing the two main groups or selections of peonies; the herbaceous hybrids which die down sub surface buds during their dormant season and the tree or woody shrub peonies which retain a year round woody branch structure above ground level. During their dormant season, the Itoh or Intersectional hybrids retain only extremely short (1"-2") woody stems above ground level. Ornamentally, they achieve the best of both parental worlds with the handsome flowers and foliage of the woody tree peonies displayed on an herbaceous plant, with annual new growth originating from buds below ground level. Strong healthy plants form attractive dense, neat rounded bushes which are shorter in stature than most tree peonies. Flowers are displayed above the handsome foliage that remains greener longer than their herbaceous parents. Intersectional hybrids are somewhat hardier than tree peonies and more tolerant of heat and humidity which extends their ornamental potential in both the North and south.
