Raspberry Sundae is shaped like a bowl with a generous helping of raspberry ruffles served up at its center. Layers of baby pink petals grace the edges of the bloom before giving into layers of vanilla, finally graduating to a creamy raspberry center. A mid-season bloomer that is also very fragrant.

growing instructions

How to Plant
Prepare a 12"x12" hole. Aerate and loosen the removed earth and add in compost or an all-purpose fertilizer. Fill in hole with the mixture and dig a new hole 8" deep. Place the peony root so the eyes are no more than 1" below the soil (eyes buried too deep will not bloom). Water the roots regularly, but do not allow soil to stay soggy.

Where to Plant

Zones 3-8. Peonies do best in areas with cold winters. If you are in zone 8, fall planting is advisable. Peonies like full sun and will not bloom as well in shaded areas. Six hours of bright sun is required for healthy blooms, so plant in a place that receives adequate sun exposure..

When to Plant
Peonies can be planted in either spring or fall. Fall-planted peonies sometimes produce blooms a little faster than spring-planted peonies. Peony roots can tolerate frost, but it is best to plant the roots about 4-6 weeks before the ground freezes for fall-planted Peonies, and just after the last hard freeze for spring-planted peonies. Potted peonies may be planted at any time during the growing season.

After Blooming
As blooms fade simply remove spent flowers and about 6" of the stem to prevent the peony from seeding. Keep as much foliage as possible intact so the plant can store extra energy for next season's blooms.
