The undisputed queen of the garden, peonies come in two forms (tree and herbaceous), both grow very well in Australia, particularly areas that receive heavy frost. Whilst the flowers are delicate, once the plant is established they are incredibly hardy, including having low to moderate water requirements.

It is best to plant Peonies in the full sun to part shade, with very free draining soils. They prefer a PH of between 7.5 and 8, adding lime is essential to assist them in blooming. A handful of lime at Cup Day and again at Anzac Day along with some well composted manure will help with assisting with beautiful blooms. When selection a position for Peonies, it is important to remember they do not like their roots disturbed, choose an area that there will be little disturbance to. When planting your peony, its essential not to plant it to deep. Prepare a hole to a depth of 20cm, add lime (literally up to 2L a bucket) to the hole along with some well composted manure. Remember peonies take time... First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap.
