'Kopper Kettle' Itoh hybrid peony

Copper orange semidouble blooms occasionally streaked with yellow are head-turners, especially as they open to reveal deep copper centers.

Surround ‘Kopper Kettle’ with sky blue forget-me-nots for a refreshing warm-cool contrast, or grow it in a cluster of three with a Tuscan terra-cotta olive jar as an accent.

The vigorous plant blooms in late spring and grows about 2½ feet tall and 3½ feet wide.
