We love the way these three peonies look together. Save with a bundle of three roots: Coral Sunset Peony is a coveted shade of coral pink, deep and rich, with glossy emerald green foliage. Diana Parks is a deep scarlet red, and the Etched Salmon Peony is a full salmon-pink bloom. The petals of Peony flowers are edible, and make a lovely garnish for sweets and drinks.

How to Plant
Soak your Peony root in room temperature water for about 2-4 hours to re-hydrate it before planting. Now - this is important - you have to plant it at the correct depth or it will not flower. The eyes should be covered by ½” - 2” of soil. Now give your plant a good wish, a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, and a long drink of water.
Where to Plant
Find a place with good well-draining soil that gets a decent amount of sun, some afternoon shade, and protection from the wind. Space plants about 24" apart.
When to Plant
Bareroot peonies can be planted in spring or fall. The plants are not frost tender, so they can be planted 2 to 3 weeks before your frost free date in the spring or after your first frost in the fall. Plant within a day or two of receiving your roots. Fall planted Peonies will set roots over the winter and bloom in the spring
When to Expect Blooms
For a couple of glorious weeks in the early summer. (Although it can take a year or two to get reliable blooms). Among Peonies, these are early blooming varieties.
Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water when they are setting buds. And ask us any questions along the way.
If you have cold winters, mulch the roots in the winter. If you have hot summers, give it some afternoon shade. These varieties does not need support.
