Peony Etched Salmon

The Etched Salmon Peony is very fragrant, and has an elegant bowl shape with an intricate weave of petals inside that looks almost like a rose. The coloring is a gorgeous light salmon-coral pink, with petals 'etched' in a subtle silver hue. Sublime.

Peonies explode into bloom for a week or two in early summer, and then serve as a full bushy green accent plant in the garden. While easy to grow, they do require patience, sometimes taking two or even three years to bloom. They grow stronger and more prolific with every passing year, and live up to 100 years.

Includes 1 large 3-5 eye bare root, planting instructions, and a wooden plant marker

How to Plant Soak your Peony root in room temperature water for about 2-4 hours to rehydrate it before planting. Dig a whole about twice the size of the root, (or choose a pot about 3 times the size of the root), then fill the hole/pot with dirt so that you place the roots on soft soil, at a depth just below the surface of the ground or rim of the pot. Fill in the hole around the peony with the remaining soil, tucking in the roots gently, so that the top of your plant (the stem and eyes) is buried *just* below the surface. Now - this is important - you have to plant it at the correct depth or it will not flower. Now give your roots a few solid pats to compress the soil around it, a long drink of water, and stick your Plantgem marker on the spot so you’ll remember where your Peony lives now
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 Bare root 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 root
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). Some varieties bloom earlier than others, so don’t be alarmed if your peonies don’t bloom all at once
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water when they are setting buds. Cut the foliage and stems down to the ground when it wilts with the onset of frost
Extra Credit If you have cold winters, mulch the roots in the winter. If you have hot summers, give it some afternoon shade. Provide support for the large blooms, if needed. The petals of Peony flowers are edible, and make a lovely garnish for sweets and drinks
