Starting Friday, July 14th, our Peonies will go on sale for 40% OFF! Choose from a wide variety of foliage and blooms, and find the perfect fit to your Spring/Summer garden.
The basics of growing Peonies are pretty simple. They are sun-lovers and will perform best when they get at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. The more sun they get, the better they’ll bloom, so it’s best to plant your peonies in the sunniest location possible. They will grow best in loose, fertile, well drained soil (avoid areas where the soil is soggy or compacted).
Once you have planted them, you can trim any seed heads off that are left on the plant (although most have already been trimmed). This will keep the plants looking neat and will also prevent them from producing seed heads. Remove as little foliage as possible so the plants can produce the energy they need for next year’s flowers. The foliage will turn a lighter shade of green, and eventually die back in the fall. At this time you may choose to cut them down, or wait until the following spring.
