Peony Tips for Warm Region Gardeners
Often the question arises, "I love peonies but live where it may be too warm for them. . . can I grow peonies in my area?" Here's some advice that will help you determine if peonies are likely to thrive in your region.
Garden peonies appreciate cold weather during the winter and require at least 30 consecutive days of below freezing temperatures. The goal here is to keep the roots cold, so freezing and thawing weather isn't what's needed. Before buying any type of peony, consider whether you can provide sufficient dormancy period cold weather for your peonies to thrive and bloom.
If you live in zones 7 and 8, select peony varieties that bloom early in the season, before your late spring/early summer weather gets too hot. Each cultivar's description on this website includes information as to whether it is an early, midseason or late bloomer. Recognize that zone 8 represents the edge of weather where peonies will successfully bloom so planting in zone 8 is a bit of an experiment. Peonies that bloom mid to late season may survive in warm areas but they are unlikely to flower profusely and dependably.
The planting depth of your peony roots is critical to flower production. The rule of thumb is to plant the "eyes" or little pink or red growing points 1" to 2" under the soil, with the deeper end of the range preferable in the coldest regions (zones 3-5). Gardeners in warmer areas will have best results if they plant only 1" deep (zones 6 and 7) or even just 1/2" deep in zone 8.
In hot areas site your peonies where they'll get a little protection from the fiercest afternoon sun. A location with filtered late day light is ideal.
Keep in mind that regardless of where you grow peonies, when mature, these plants produce lots of big, and usually heavy, flowers. (Which is one of the reason you love them, right?) The double and semi double blossom forms are densely petalled and tend to catch rain or sprinkler water. Placing ring or crisscross supports over young plants will allow shoots to grow through the supports, adding stability to blooming stems, and eventually becoming almost invisible in the dense foliage. On the glass-half-full side, if your peonies flop in the rain it provides the perfect excuse to cut to your heart's content, bring bunches to the office, share with friends and place bouquets all around the house. How awful would that be?

Growing Peony instruction

Growing  peony  Instructions

Planting Instructions for Your Bare Root Peonies.

We make special efforts to get your roots to you at the proper time for planting between March ,September 21 and October 17th in the spring and fallhope you take advantage of this and plant the roots immediately. Holding the roots for any length of time before planting defeats the purpose of receiving fresh dug roots that are ready to start growing a new root system and building a strong plant. You may use the small amount of peat moss your order arrived in while planting your peony roots.
Selecting a Planting Site
Select a well drained site with a rich well aerated soil which receives sun for most of the day. (At least 10 hours is best for stronger stems. More sunlight is better! If you don't have 10 hours of sun you can expect fewer or no flowers.
Preparing the Soil
Add peat moss at a rate of one part peat moss for every 3 parts of soil if you are growing peonies in sandy soils to improve root growth and extend flower life and increase the total number of flowers on the plants. If you have clay soils the addition of 1 part peat moss to every 3 parts of clay soil will improve aeration of the soil and increase the height of the soil slightly making a mound and providing better drainage. Raised beds with a depth of 12-18" of additional well drained soil is recommended for the hybrids and species that will die in soggy soils before you can blink an eye.
Avoid Wet Locations!
Never plant in a low spot where water will stand as this will kill your peony. They have no tolerance for wet soils! Never use a plastic mulch which suffocates the plant roots.
Fertilizers
You may use bone meal or a bulb fertilizer at the time of planting according to the instructions on the container being sure to avoid letting the fertilizer touch the roots directly.
Prepare the Root for Planting
Soak the root for 20 - 30 minutes in water prior to planting to rehydrate the root which loses some moisture during shipping.
Dig a Proper Planting Hole
Dig a hole large enough to accommodate the roots without bending them. Set the root in the hole so that the dormant buds(eyes)will be one inch below the ground when the soil is gently but firmly filled in around the root.
We do not recommend growing peonies in pots.

How to Prune a Peony

How to Prune a Peony

Peonies, with their big, flashy, often fragrant blossoms become the focal point of the garden in spring. The flowers only last a week or two, but by planting different varieties together you can extend the season to up to six weeks. Once the flowers fade, you are left with an attractive shrub with deep-cut leaves. Pruning peonies is easy, and they often require no pruning at all. So how do you know when to trim peonies? Continue reading to find out more about when and how to prune a peony. Is Pruning of Peony Necessary? Is pruning of peony necessary, and if so, how do you go about peony pruning? In fact, peonies need very little pruning, but as with any shrub, pruning helps to promote good overall health and the control of insects and diseases. Peony pruning can help maintain the shape of the plant. When to Trim Peonies Herbaceous peonies are tender-stemmed plants that die back naturally in fall and regrow again in spring. Cutting back the dead stems to the ground in fall helps prevent insects and diseases and makes the garden look tidy. When you remove the stems, take care not to damage the crown, which is the fleshy part of the plant between the roots and the stems. Remove stems that are infested with diseases or insects as soon as you discover the problem. Trim tree peony branches to remove damage caused by winter weather and to correct structural problems in spring. How to Prune a Peony The first thing you should know about pruning peonies is where to make the cut. The best place to cut a peony stem is just above a healthy bud. If the stem is diseased, make sure you cut back to healthy wood. Do not compost pruned cuttings that are diseased or infested with insects. Burn the stems or bag and discard them instead. In cases of severe injury or when the plant is overgrown, remove the entire stem by cutting it close to the ground. When two branches cross and rub against each other, remove the least desirable branch. The friction from constant rubbing creates a wound that serves as an entry point for insects and diseases. Disbudding is the removal of selected buds to control the size and quantity of the flowers. If you remove the side buds and leave the bud at the tip of a stem, you will get one very large blossom. Removing the terminal bud and leaving those along the sides of the stem results in more but smaller flowers.

Herbaceous Peony










Herbaceous peonies are a special subset of herbaceous peony that is actually a hybrid, or cross, between two different herbaceous peonies peregrina & lactiflora. This cross has produced unique colors not often found in traditional peonies. The unique characteristics of these hybrids are that they have just one flower on a rather sturdy stem. This makes them excellent cut flowers and amazing garden plants as they remain upright in the garden without staking.
The color of coral peonies changes dramatically as they open - as you can see in the above picture of Coral Charm. The flowers begin a deep coral bud and then fade to cream as they open. This results in plants that have incredibly interesting colorways. We especially like corals when they are planted en masse.
Coral peonies have the added benefit of being the first herbaceous peonies to bloom. This early flowering time makes them not only ideal for cool climates, zones 3-6, but for zones 7&8 in the south as well.

Japanese Tree Peony












Lutea, sometimes referred to as Delavayi, is a species of tree peony from Tibet that has a bright canary-yellow flower. The flower is pendulous and so some of the cultivars and hybrids that derive from this species have flowers that have tendency to face downward. The main attraction of this group is their unique flower coloring. They bring wonderful yellow, gold, and orange, sunset peonies to the garden. These plants are later to bloom than other tree peonies, tend to be lower growing, and have leaf coverage that is more spreading. These plants are not as cold hardy as the other two tree peony groups. In cold winters or in cold zones, Lutea tree peonies will die back to the ground in winter, but will reemerge beautifully from the root in spring.
Of special note is that lutea hybrids are the main tree peony group that has been used to create the intersectional peony hybrids - intersectional peonies have inherited the wonderful colors of the lutea hybrids.

Spring Peony Care







If you have peonies and you are anticipating a large frost after your peonies have begun to sprout you can place an overturned pot or light sheet over the plants just before the frost. This will protect the forming buds from any added stress that the frost can cause, which may hamper the bloom. Just don't forget to remove the covering as soon as possible. Note that this is the safer option.
That being said, we have thousands of peonies and rarely cover any of our plants during frost and our peonies still bloom well and remain beautiful. This frost hardiness is especially true for tree peonies that emerge very early in the season. We have had plants with blossoms ready to open get frosted and they have opened beautifully not too long after. Just be careful not to touch your peonies when they are frozen as it will cause them to break.
If your peonies are in full flower (flowers completely open) and you are anticipating frost it is best tocover them to reduce the impact of the frost.

Eternal Classical Peony Cheongsam












The peony, also known as (fu gui rong hua) “flower of riches and honors”, is the national flowers of China. The peony is usually printed on Chinese qipao, not only because of its splendid blooms but also its mysterious connection with the renowned Chinese ancient Beauty Xi Shi. There is a similarity between peony and Xi Shi, that is brave and sympathetic beauty. The peony ranks a unique place in all floras, just like Xi Shi in ancientChina. As a famous poet in Tang Dynasty, Bi Juyi, puts it, only Xi Shi deserves the crown of Beauty, and peony of flora. When a woman wear peony Qipao dress, it always have a feeling of unparalleled sense of beauty.

Peonies are popular in Chinese art. Paintings of the peony are hung in the home for good luck and in offices for good business. Also, these paintings are hung in places of marriage, as the Chinese also regard the meaning of the peony with a man and woman living harmoniously together. This belief goes with their overall tradition of complementary opposites. For the Chinese, it is also a symbol of love and affection and feminine beauty. White peonies represent young girls who are recognized for their intellect and also by their beauty. Red peonies are highly valued because the color is considered life-giving.

A Romance Poem about Peony

This morning the green fists of the peonies are getting ready
to break my heart
as the sun rises,
as the sun strokes them with his old, buttery fingers

and they open —
pools of lace,
white and pink —
and all day the black ants climb over them,

boring their deep and mysterious holes
into the curls,
craving the sweet sap,
taking it away

to their dark, underground cities —
and all day
under the shifty wind,
as in a dance to the great wedding,

the flowers bend their bright bodies,
and tip their fragrance to the air,
and rise,
their red stems holding

all that dampness and recklessness
gladly and lightly,
and there it is again —
beauty the brave, the exemplary,

blazing open.
Do you love this world?
Do you cherish your humble and silky life?
Do you adore the green grass, with its terror beneath?

Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden,
and softly,
and exclaiming of their dearness,
fill your arms with the white and pink flowers,

with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling,
their eagerness
to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are
nothing, forever?
