The flowering period of this fragrant flower takes place between May and June. During this period, several colorful peony roses develop that can be used for cutting work. The longer you leave a peony to grow, the more beautiful the flowers will eventually be. The flowering period of the peony is also the best time for cutting.
Care and the best moments for planting
Like any other plant, the peony needs proper care, so that you can enjoy these beautiful flowers for years.
As mentioned before, the peony needs a fertile soil type to grow. Soils that are too acidic are therefore better avoided. You can recognize acidic soil by moss growing on the surface. Should the soil be too acidic, it can be remedied by adding lime, which reduces acidity. In addition, the soil must be stripped of all weeds, so that the flower is not impeded in its growth.
Once the soil has been prepared with the proper structure, you can start looking at the best moment for planting the peony. Following the annual cycle of the flower, which is divided into different phases, namely the plant growth, flower growth and rest phase, fall is the perfect time for planting. After planting it takes about a year before the flowers are fully grown.
