And reds and pinks and whites and a lot of different forms and shapes they have nice summer foliage they make a nice shrub in the landscape when they're mature about three feet tall and about three feet wide and in the fall a lot of them have really good fall color in purples and burgandy's and reds the very best time to plant or transplant either way peonies is August 15th through the 1st of November that's really the only time that you want to move them if you buy one at a garden center it's potted that's one thing but if you're moving one from a garden where it's been growing this is the only time to transplant or to divide them penes like full Sun a very well-drained soil you really probably want to get them in a spot where they're going to get five to six or more hours of Sun the more Sun they get the better so if you're transplanting this one I've already dug out of the ground when you're digging them at or plant take your Spade or your shovel quite a way out from the distance where the stems are because peonies you'll find have big fleshy roots that look a little bit like trees and that's one of the reasons they don't need a lot of water they store water in those stems so if you slice a lot of those off that's going to be a little bit stressful to transplant so lift the whole thing up and if you have a lot of soil on there don't hesitate to put on a piece of plastic and take the hose and wash all that soil away and when you wash all that soil away you'll be able to see the eyes let me cut some of this year's stems off for you and show you these eyes because it's important this is one of the very easiest and just about the only way to feel with the peony is if you bury the plant too deeply so if you can see these little pink eyes here each one of those are next year's flowering stems so cut the plant back so you can see those and you'd never want those more than two inches below the soil surface so if in doubt raise them higher rather than lower I've already dug the hole here to the appropriate depth I've added a lot of organic matter because when you put a peony in its going to be in for decades penes may outlive you so do proper preparation add some organic matter either dehydrated manure or compost maybe about one part organic matter to two parts so that you've taken out of the whole mix it up very thoroughly as I have here and check your depth because again you want to make sure that plant is set at just the right depth better too high than too low then just fill it in and after you've got it filled in tamp it very gently water it once and only water it again if you don't have rain throughout the fall up until the time the ground freezes then all you have to do is wait for the winter to be over and anticipate beautiful peony flowers for years to come
