Paeonia valbiflora or Paenoia officinalis

Prefers well drained soil rich in organiz matter, with no competition from nearby shrubs and trees. Dig holes 12 to 18 inches deep before planting. In Spring, add 2-3 inch layer of mulch. Remove mulch in late Fall and leave unmulched through the Winter to encourage flowering. Peonies require Winter cold to floom.
