Native to China, Europe and North America, peonies form beautiful thick shrubs that flower a lot. The big deciduous leaves have a dark green color with a blueish underside. The amazing flowers, which bloom in late spring to early summer, make excellent cut flowers. The petals are in shades of pink and have a half-bowl shape and a delicious scent.
Peonies are very slow growers and may take some time before new plants fully establish and begin to flower. Once established, they are long-lived and need little maintenance.
- Plant it in part sun, part shade, or even full shade.
- Does best in an open situation as air movement around the plant helps keep it healthy. However, avoid a completely exposed position where flower petals could blow away quickly.
- Medium water needs and should not be overwatered. Water deeply after the top half of soil has dried out. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
- When the plant has established, you can transplant it to garden. Transplant in September after blooming and active growth period, when it starts to enter winter dormancy. Try not to disturb the roots. In late autumn cover the site to protect the plant from cold and remove the cover in early spring.
