    Frequently Asked Questions

    To ensure optimal growth for your Celebrity Peony bulbs, follow these crucial steps. First, choose a well-draining location with full sun or partial shade. Peonies prefer a soil pH between 6.5 and 7.5, so perform a soil test and amend accordingly.

    Plant the bulbs in the fall or early spring, about 4-6 weeks before the ground freezes or before the last frost. Dig a hole 12-18 inches deep and 12 inches wide, then mix in organic matter and a slow-release, balanced fertilizer. Place the bulb with its eyes facing upwards, ensuring that they are 2 inches below the soil surface.

    Space multiple bulbs 3-4 feet apart. Water the bulbs thoroughly after planting and keep the soil consistently moist until the ground freezes. Mulch the area to maintain moisture levels and regulate soil temperature.

    Celebrity Peony bulbs typically bloom in late spring to early summer, with the flowering period lasting approximately 7-10 days. Yes unfortunately, the blooming period is that short. However, the precise timing can vary depending on factors like climate, weather conditions, and geographic location.

    To extend the blooming period and enjoy their beautiful, large, and fragrant flowers for a longer time, consider planting different peony varieties that bloom at different times. Regularly deadheading spent blooms will help maintain the plant's health and appearance.

    Celebrity Peonies are known to be deer resistant, as deer generally find the taste and texture of peony leaves unappealing. However, it is essential to note that no plant is entirely deer-proof. When food is scarce, deer may still be attracted to peonies and other less-preferred plants.

    To further protect your peonies from deer, consider implementing additional deer-deterrent strategies, such as using repellents, installing fencing, or planting other deer-resistant plants around your peonies to discourage browsing.

    To propagate Celebrity Peony bulbs, divide the established clumps in the fall when the plants are dormant. Carefully dig up the entire root system, taking care not to damage the eyes (the small, reddish buds on the roots).

    Rinse off the soil and use a sharp, clean knife to divide the root clump into smaller sections, ensuring each division has at least 3-5 eyes. Replant the divisions immediately, following the same planting guidelines as when you initially planted the bulbs. Water thoroughly and apply a layer of mulch. Be patient, as it may take a couple of years for the new plants to become established and bloom.
