Gorgeous, Effortless Peonies
These no-fuss, reliable perennials are perfect for time-challenged gardeners.
Grow in Mild Winter Zones
Double varieties that bloom mid- to late-season are poor candidates for mild climates; they may produce flower buds, but warm weather usually keeps them from opening properly. For best results, choose early blooming single or double-flowered peonies or Japanese types (the early-, mid-, and late-season varieties all do fine).
