Peonies grow in areas with cold winters, such as the Highveld, eastern Free State, KZN Midlands and higher inland parts of the Western Cape in Southern Africa.
These bulbs must be left undisturbed.
These gross feeders need lots of water and regular feeding throughout their active summer growing season.
Mark their position so they will not be disturbed or damaged during their dormant winter period.
Indigenous to China and Japan.
They do best in semi-shade or where they get only morning sun, keep this in mind when selecting where to place these bulbs.
They need well drained, compost-enriched soil and enjoy a thick mulch of organic material at all times.
Peonies make fine cut flowers.
