I’ve just been reading Martha Stewart’s website and there is a new article on Peonies and how to grown them here. The picture below is from the article. I think they are a wonderful plant and if you have a large garden like mine they are a godsend because they spread out every year and pack a good punch as they are such a large flower.
Mine are just starting to get to the point where they grow very quickly.
I have about 30 – 40 plants in cream, white, pink and red planted around the garden as I really like them as cut flowers in the house before the roses come into their own (secretly I prefer the Peonies, but don’t tell my over pampered roses that!!).
