Just wondering if I need to cover my peonies?!?!
I have most of my other "stuff" covered, but to cover the peonies would be a major undertaking. Any advise asap would be appreciated!

Thanks so much!

(who was gonna let that dang rose bush freeze if it didnt stop poking me as I tried to cover it up!)

Yes, I would. Late Spring freezes could result in no blooms. I threw a sheet over mine.

For what it's worth, I covered all 15 of mine tonight. Some have buds as large as a quarter now.
