The Peony is outrageously beautiful in bloom in springtime, with lush foliage all summer long. Peony flowers are perennials that come back every spring to take your breath away. The plants may live longer than you do, some have been known to thrive for over 100 years. Peony plants require little maintenance as long as they are planted properly and establish themselves; they do not respond well to transplanting. Dig a generous-sized hole in well-drained soil in a sunny spot. If the soil is heavy or very sandy, enrich it with compost. Incorporate about one cup of bone meal into the soil. Tamp it firmly. Deadhead Peony blossoms as soon as they begin to fade, cutting to a strong leaf so that the stem doesn’t stick out of the foliage. Cut the foliage to the ground in the fall to avoid any overwintering disease.
