Answer: Peonies do grow best in cool weather, that's why they look so beautiful in the Northeast! They don't need acidic soil. A soil with the pH between 6 and 7 will do. You can grow them in pots, but they'll have to be protected through the winter either by heavy mulching outdoors or moving them to an unheated garage. It would be best to grow them in the soil where, if happy, will bloom for many years!
