Growing and Maintenance Tips

A permanent, sunny or partly shaded site is ideal for Peonies as they resent disturbance. They need a minimum of six hours of full sun, but a location with afternoon shade and protection from strong winds will ensure that the blooms last longer. Peonies perform best in well-drained, evenly moist soil with a pH near neutral. They are heavy feeders and enjoy the addition of lots of compost at planting time as well as a regular top dressing of compost in the fall. A layer of mulch will keep the soil from drying out as well as helping to keep the foliage clean. Peonies are drought-tolerant once established.

When planting a Garden Peony, the depth is important. To ensure flowering, the eyes must be planted between 4 to 5 cms below ground level. Newly planted peonies often do not flower the first year because their energy initially goes into developing a deep, substantial root system. Once established, Peonies can live 50 years or more. If it is necessary to divide or move a peony it should  be done in the fall.
