Knowing and Growing Peonies

If you live where Peonies grow, it’s the same every year in late spring. Certain homes have them in beds, borders, along drives – and anywhere they grow, they create probably the most beautiful clump of flowering of the whole season. Big, usually fluffy flowers in glossy green foliage.
