Paeonia

Paeonies or peonies are one of the most popular garden plants. The big, fluffy, and fragrant flowers are available in a wide range of colors, forms, and sizes. Unless paeonies only bloom for a week, many gardeners decide to plant these fantastic flowers in the garden. There are three types of peonies, herbaceous (bush), three, and Itoh (intersectional). At De Vroomen, we sell a wide range of different peonies. Choose from our selection in our webshop, and we pack and ship your order to the USA and Canada.

How to grow peonies?

Peonies appear in three different types: herbaceous, or garden peonies, tree peonies that grow into bushes and Itoh, or intersectional peonies. It depends on the climate zone you live in, which peony suits well in your area. If you are looking for an extended flowering season, combine different types of peonies, if your living area provides the right growing conditions. All peonies take time to establish, but ones they’re established, they steal the show in every garden! Peonies are perfect for cut flowers in bouquets. Peonies don’t like to be moved. Moving them will affect growth. Plant peonies in fall, so the roots have enough time to establish.
