RE: Help with peonies

Chris: This is what peonies do at the end of summer and into fall.
Normally I wait a bit longer to mow them down (or cut, whichever way you
prefer), usually mid to late fall. Same thing is happening to mine here,
so as long as there is no outward sign of stress or disease (like an
obvious fungus or mildew or something yucky) I wouldn't worry about it.
Kind of like waiting for tulip foliage to die off completely...looks
terrible until you can finally get it cleared away, but necessary to
next year's healthy plants.

Subject: [CHAT] Help with peonies

Many of my peony plants are browning and look awful! Could this be
blight<br>or could this be the end of their season? Also, I have an
abundance of<br>mature foxgloves for the first time, but many are
growing in all the wrong<br>places! When is a safe time to relocate
them? I tried to pot some up in<br>the late spring/early summer, but
they didn't like it much, although they<br>didn't die
outright.<br><br>Chris<br>Long Island, NY<br>Zone
