Intersectional Peony Growing and Maintenance Tips

Peonies do not like to be moved once established and will live for many years in the right location. Fall is the ideal time to prune or plant your bush peony to prepare for spring flowering. Prune your peony back to 1 to 3 inches from the ground in the fall. Throughout the blooming season, remove spent blooms just below the base of the flower to prevent seed development.
