Gorgeous, Effortless Peonies
These no-fuss, reliable perennials are perfect for time-challenged gardeners.
Plant the tubers with their eyes (growth buds) pointing up, under no more than one inch of soil in mild-winter climates and two inches in cold climates. If you plant them too deep, you will have foliage but no flowers.
Hold the tubers at the appropriate depth and add soil. Wait to water until you have firmed the soil around and above the tuber; this prevents them from settling below optimum planting depth.
