Peonies are stalwarts in the garden, long-lived, easy to grow, and beautiful. They have few requirements: give them a sunny well-drained location, plant 2-4' apart, with the eyes (new buds at the crown) no more than 2" below soil level and apply fertilizer or compost in spring. They take a while to establish, often 3 years before first bloom. Zones 3-8.
