Grow Picture Perfect Peonies in Your Garden This Spring!

Peonies (Paeonia sp.) feature lush and delicate petals but are extremely hardy, require little maintenance, and love the sun. As a perennial, they’ll come back every year to steal the show in your garden or as fresh cut flowers in your home.

Peony Care

Peonies do their best when grown near the middle or back of borders or beds. These perennials need full sun to thrive. Peonies also prefer rich, fertile soil that is well-draining. Their fragrance is an added bonus too!

Types of Peonies

There are two main types of Peonies, herbaceous peonies and tree peonies. The more common herbaceous type die back to the ground every fall and come up again every spring. The tree type peonies leave a woody stem exposed during the winter months.
