I planted several peonies in late summer When will they begin to bloom?
Many peony plants produce few, if any, flowers the first spring. In fact, it’s advisable to pinch off any flower buds that develop the first spring to promote root and foliar growth. Flower bud development requires a great deal of the peony plant’s energy. Initially, the young plant’s energy should be directed to root and foliar growth to aid plant establishment. Peony plants should be blooming well by the third or fourth year.
