Where can I grow peonies?
Herbaceous and Intersectional Peonies are suitable for USDA zones 2-8 and Trees USDA zones 4-8.
They will need a dormancy period each winter to bloom and thrive. Peonies are not usually grown successfully south of Birmingham, Alabama or Monterey, California unless they are at a higher elevation that would provide the cold they would need. It’s best to determine what zone you are planting in before ordering by USDA Growing Zone lookup or local Master Gardeners / Extension Centers.
