Re: Help with peonies

    This thread has been going on for a bit and I may have missed this
aspect of peony growth being covered. But, just in case. Peony come in
early, mid-season, and late bloomers. The early will also go dormant earlier
than the others as well. I have a few out there now that really should be
cut back as they are dead as a dead above ground and look it. Also we had
very dry July here and did not water that area of the property. That can
also hurry along dormancy for a season.
    Whatever the short falls of peony I could not imagine my property
without them. I especially love the single, anemone and Japanese type
blooms. Not as bad about falling over. My peonies are also planted on 4 foot
centers and help to support each other now that they are mature.
