Peonies 2012 bloom sequence

328

Published on

The gardening year 2012 began very early in the Midwest, prompting peonies to open as much as a month earlier than usual. As the season progressed, the earliness decreased, but nearly all of the herbaceous varieties in my garden were finished blooming by June 4.

Peonies 2012 bloom sequence

  1. 1. Peony season began very early in 2012, with my early treepeonies opening in mid-April. The early herbaceous types beganto open as early as April 29, with several varieties following alongwith the other two tree peonies. I had peonies blooming in mygarden from April 29 through June 3.—five full weeks. Factorsthat, in my experience, effect a peony’s bloom time include: • How long it’s been in the same location, or how long ago it was planted • Its location (i.e. near a building, in semi-shade, etc.) • Its genetics: some varieties bloom later because of their ancestry • Its general health and vigor: some establish more quickly than others • Temperature and moisture in spring. copyright Jean Starr 1 1/20/2013
