Peonies are great perennials that come up every year, bloom for three
weeks and then are neat, green bushes for the rest of the growing
We love to include the single peony varieties like "Mischief" in our garden designs. The flowers are lighter in color and do not require being staked.
We also love to include a few of the old fashioned, regular peony varieties in our garden designs. However, these types of peonies require us to install peony rings in April. We push them down into the ground so they stick up about two inches. Then, each week we pull the ring up to match the growth of the peony. That way our full, beautiful, flowering peony is protected when it is ready to flower.
