Hopeful gardener needs advice for peonies
Yes, zone 11, Maui, Hawaii. When it gets cold here, and rainy, it hits 50. In the summer, it's 75-90 degrees. Humidity is high. I have always loved the pictures of peonies. A couple of months ago, I threw caution to the wind and ordered four plants. I just learned they will be shipped to me in March. Any suggestions on how to plant and care for them would be greatly appreciated as now I'm concerned I may have doomed these poor plants to a short and unproductive life. Would I do best to plant them in containers? Your help would really be appreciated, as the county extension agent couldn't believe I wanted to try to grow peonies on Maui. Aloha!
