Caution, Not Heavy Users
Seasonal Requirements Differ
- Peonies do not require abundant water throughout the year, but rather should be supplied with even moisture for best results.
- The root systems are made up of many large storage roots that help them to survive during dry periods.
- Spring and fall are periods of time in which peonies require the most moisture. In the spring months, they make vegetative growth and in fall root systems become active. Supplying peonies with water at these times of the year is important for their long term health. (Note: Mother Nature usually does a good job, but some assistance may be required in very dry years.)
