Herbaceous or Bush Peony
Herbaceous peonies are long lived perennials with plants over 100 years of age being in the “prime of life”. Unlike tree Peonies, the herbaceous or bush type cultivars die back to the ground each year. Producing their buds for next year’s bloom in the fall at the crown of the plant, bush peonies are hardy in even the most severe winter climates. Hardy USDA zones 2 – 8. In zones 2 and 3, they should be mulched after the ground freezes.
