After bloom time
I've just moved into a home with an established peony bed that's about 40 feet by 3 feet. We moved into the home during bloom time last summer, and they were lovely.
The peonies take up about 1/3 of the bed in clumps throughout the length of the bed.
I want to add other things to the bed this summer, and I have a couple of questions.
What do you do with peonies after the bloom? Does the foliage remain for the entire summer. I want to plant some larkspur and taller varieties, and they will be much taller than the peonies.
What else do you plant in a peony bed?
I'm in southern Connecticut, Zone 6.
Many thanks, Valerie
