bushes make wonderful accents or border plants. Peony bushes
come in many colors and styles. Some peony bushes have only
a few large blooms, while others are covered in bright small
blooms that make excellent contrast with the deep green of the
bushes will grow to about three feel tall, and just as wide.
The bloom time of a peony bush is unfortunately only a week
long or so. Planting peonies of different bloom times near
each other for a nice dynamic effect can help to alleviate
bushes should be planted in the fall time, in order to give
them a nice, wet and cool period in which to strengthen their
root system for the upcoming winter months. Peony bushes have
lovely blooms, but they are weak. Wind can often times destroy
a beautiful flower, so planting where there is good wind protection
is a must in order to protect the bloom from possible damage
peony bushes are able to fend for themselves, it is important
not to plant them near the base of trees or other bushes.
This will help in two major ways. First of all, planting below
a tree will limit the amount of sunlight that the bush is
given each day, and peonies require a minimum of six hours
of direct sunlight daily in order to bloom. Secondly, the
roots of the existing bushes or trees may take up much of
the water and nourishment from the soil, leaving little for
the peony bush to use.
