Thanks for all the information, we purchased my parents place and have not cut the peonies before been here 3 years now so if we cut them back will they come in next year fuller? Thanks for all the information
Generally on perrenials you should cut them back when the foliae has mostly died back. As long as they have a lot of green leaves they are storing energy for the winter. So when a lot of the leaves have dropped/died cut them back,
Aha! I will look at my neighbor's peonies. She has several along her driveway that were her mom's initially. So they are enormous & grow incredible flowers every year. She tells me to cut as many as I want - I love to keep flowers all over the house as much as possible. They're so cheery!
So when she cuts hers back I'll cut mine back, right? Seems like a good idea - Thanks for putting the idea in my head
We live slightly north of St.Louis and the farmers around here have started to cut all the wildflowers on their properties. I saw a lady take care of her peonies just last weekend. Depending on where you are, it might just be the right time now.
