    Frequently Asked Questions

    For optimal results, plant Apricot Whisper Peony bulbs in either autumn or spring, depending on your climate. In cooler regions, fall planting is preferable as it allows the bulbs to establish roots before winter dormancy. The soil should be well-drained and rich in organic matter. In milder climates, spring planting is suitable, ensuring the bulbs have enough time to establish themselves before the onset of hot summer weather. If you forgot to plant them in the planting window of Fall, then wait and plant them in Spring.

    Patience is key when waiting for Apricot Whisper Peony bulbs to bloom. Typically, it takes about 1 to 2 years after planting for the bulbs to produce their first blooms. During this initial period, the plant is establishing a robust root system. However, once established, peonies are known for their longevity and can grace your garden with their stunning apricot-colored blooms for decades. Adequate sunlight, proper soil preparation, and regular watering contribute to the plant's health, promoting faster growth and earlier blooming.

    Staking may be necessary for Apricot Whisper Peony bulbs, especially as the plant matures and produces larger blooms. The weight of the flowers can sometimes cause the stems to bend or even break. To prevent this, consider installing supports or stakes in the early spring when the shoots are emerging. Use soft ties to secure the stems to the stakes, being careful not to damage the plant.

    Apricot Whisper Peony bulbs are known for their deer-resistant qualities. These plants contain compounds that make them less appealing to deer, reducing the likelihood of browsing damage. However, it's essential to note that no plant is entirely deer-proof, especially if deer populations are high, and food sources are limited. While Apricot Whisper Peonies are a good choice for those dealing with deer-related garden challenges, additional measures like fencing or (organic) repellents may still be beneficial, especially during times when food is scarce or in areas with heavy deer populations.
