RE: Help with peonies

Guess after reading a few of the other posts, I am now aware that not
all peonies do this...I've grown peonies pretty much all my life and
have never not had mine do this...all very healthy, very robust plants.
My grandmother (of the 100+ year old peonies) always told me this was
just how it was with these plants and she always mowed hers to the
ground the end of every fall once they were browned. I do agree with
Kitty, though that any blackened stems need to be removed asap...that is
never a good sign.

Chris: This is what peonies do at the end of summer and into
fall.<br>Normally I wait a bit longer to mow them down (or cut,
whichever way you<br>prefer), usually mid to late fall. Same thing is
happening to mine here,<br>so as long as there is no outward sign of
stress or disease (like an<br>obvious fungus or mildew or something
yucky) I wouldn't worry about it.<br>Kind of like waiting for tulip
foliage to die off completely...looks<br>terrible until you can finally
get it cleared away, but necessary to<br>next year's healthy
plants.<br><br><br><br>Melody, IA (Z 5/4)<br><br>"The most beautiful
