Description

Fragrant.  Peony ‘Kansas’ is an old time garden favorite peony and considered to be one of the best peonies.  Originated in 1940, Kansas is full double flower with raspberry pink / reddish blooms.  Long, strong stem flowers sit well above the foliage.  Peonies are reliable perennials to add to your garden, and come back bigger and better every year.    A favorite flower for Memorial Day.


Growers Notes:

    • Peonies are herbaceous perennials that die back in the fall and return in the spring
    • Plant in compost rich, well drained soil in 6+ hours of sunlight per day
    • Peonies do not like to be moved.  Plant them in an area with enough space to grow freely for years
    • Plant shallow, crown just below the soil line.  Peony need to feel the cold in the winter to bloom
    • Planted too deep, they will only produce foliage and no bloom
    • Water weekly during the first spring and summer after planting, until the fall rains return
    • Peonies will established themselves in the first year, then bloom in year 2 or 3 and then forever
    • Fertilize in the early spring and again after they bloom with a 5-10-10 or 10-10-10 granular             fertilizer or Espoma Flower Tone or Espoma Rose Tone
    • Cut spent blooms and leave the foliage to soak up the summer sun
    • In late fall, cut the foliage down to the ground for winter
    • Returns bigger and better every year!  With more stems and flowers than the year before
