Peonies in Alabama
Any ideas about how to grow Peonies in Alabama? I got some Peonies last year at a local store and really liked them. Have read more about them now. Understand they need cold (I live in North Shelby County, Alabama) and they may not do well some years, but also the heat can get them. I had the idea of keeping them in containers and moving them to the shade when it gets really hot. Also, I got dahlias at the same time, got confused, dug them all up. Now everything is coming up in pots and I cannot seem to tell the dahlia from the peonies. Any ideas about how to identify them before they bloom?
