Peony newbie here... need help

harman75June 12, 2014

Hello all,
My husband and I moved into this house in the fall, as spring came I found in the front an odd looking "weed" so I let it grow, then my dad told me it was a peony. (Im guessing the man that owns the house has always just cut it down when mowing)
So here is my question...what the heck do I do with it?? lol is it supposed to be a bush? do I cut it back it the fall? If so, do I cut to where??
Please help thank you, Harman!

Hi..please let it be and enjoy ! : ) see my pic above your post. It will become a bush, but not an unwanted type. I LOVE mine!

Cut it back to the ground in the fall (after Labor Day). Otherwise enjoy.
