Freezing temps predicted -- affect on peonies?
We've had temps in the 60s-low 80s for the last 3 weeks. The peonies are going crazy and some shoots are over 2' high. These are well-established plants, at least 15 years old, probably older.
We are going to get night temps from 28 to 23 degrees (or less) starting tomorrow night for about 5-6 nights. Will this wipe out the peonies' blooms for the year? I'm sure they'll survive, but what should I expect?
(I'm going to try to purchase frost blankets tomorrow, but am not sure whether I'll be able to find them!)
Thanks for any knowledge you might have to share!
