Need to know everything about peonies
I don't know a thing about peonies except that I really want them even though this is not a region they grow very well in.
I planted a couple herbaceous peony roots 6 or 8 years ago. I get foliage every year but last year is the first time I got some buds on one of them. I got 2 buds but only one went on to develop. This year I have 4 swollen buds on that plant. If I pick them early, will other branches develop buds?
Each year the plants come in larger but they still die before the summer heats up. Anything I can do to prolong their growing season?
Please tell me anything you know about peonies. Especially for growing them in a hot, dry climate. Thanks in advance.
