Peonies have a long and storied history, beginning some 2,000 years ago in Europe and the Far East, where they were propagated for medicinal purposes. But peonies are most highly revered for their beauty. The Chinese refer to them as "Sho-yo," meaning "most beautiful."
Peonies in containers from local nurseries can be planted now. It is best to water a peony at its roots rather than getting the leaves and blooms wet.
Peonies come in two varieties: tree and herbaceous.Tree peonies grow to eye level on woody stems with few branches and are not used as cut flowers. Herbaceous peonies produce bushy stems that are green, pink or red, and grow 2 to 4 feet high.
