Want to learn how to extend the flowering season of peonies? Follow these simple tips to enjoy blooms from April through June.
One of the biggest drawbacks of growing peonies is their short bloom time. But you can easily plant and blend successive blooms with different flower forms so that peony flowers last for 7-8 weeks from April through June.
If you want a continuous set of peony blooms, here is the order in which they flower through a growing season.
– Woodland peonies– Tree peonies– Herbaceous Varieties– Intersectional hybrids, like Itoh
When planting, keep in mind their light requirements too to get the most blooms out of your peonies too. In general, most peony flowers prefer full sun, particularly herbaceous species and intersectional varieties like Itoh.
Tree peonies can tolerate full sun to dappled shade, however, they will do much better when planted in full sun.
