Peony Under a Pear Tree

peony005(6)July 20, 2012

I am planning to make a border edge around my dwarf Pear Tree enough space for a 6 different varieties of Itoh, Herbeceous and Japanesse Tree Peony. The location will receives full sun exposure for about 8-9 hours. Distance between the pear tree from the trunk will be about 3 feet. Do you think the peonies will grow and blooms well in this location? I have read that peony should not be planted near a tree or shrubs but just wanted to know from your experienced how well they compete with trees or shrubs near by.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

You must have a good reason for selecting that planting site. I would not plant that close to your pear tree. I know it is a dwarf, but I still think it is too close. Al
