Peony Growing Information and Photos

The peony plant in Massachusetts literally dies down to nothing each winter. In the spring, red shoots come out. The flower is in flower all through May. By July 1st, the flowers are all gone.

One April we decided the peonies were getting just a bit TOO close to the stairs, and in mid-April we dug up a batch of them by the stairs and replanted them over by the bird feeder. They did QUITE nicely over there. They didn't flower the first year, but the plants were healthy and growing. They began flowering the next year.
