HOW TO GROW PEONIES

a complete guide

Now, every year when peony season rolls around I get tons of questions about peony care and how to grow them, so I thought I'd put all my answers in one place and give you some tips on how you can grow peonies too.

BEST ZONES FOR GROWING PEONIES

Peonies grow well in Zones 2-8, which means they require at least 30 consecutive days of freezing temps in the winter. No deep freeze, no go.

DO PEONIES REQUIRE FULL SUN OR SHADE?

The best place to plant a peony bush is where it will receive 6-8 hours of sun per day minimum.

Peonies bloom once a year in the spring. They have a short bloom season, lasting 7-10 days, but it is a glorious one!

WHEN IS PEONIES SEASON?

1. It's a young peony and not established yet. 2. It's not getting enough sun. 3. It's planted too deep.
