Tree Peonies and Water

Posted by christine_zone5 zone 5 MI (My Page) on

I just planted a potted Tree Peony in my garden. It's placement is right next to an irrigation line, therefore it will be watered regularly throughout the summer. But I did some Tree Peony care searches and found that, once established, they like to be on the dry side, and they should not be watered too often. Does anyone have any experience with this? Should I move my plant?

Thanks for your help!

As long as the soil drains well you should be OK. I have several tree peonies in a well watered area of the garden and they do very well. Al
