The Q&A Archives: Shortlife Span Of Peonies

Question: Hello,
For several years, I have had beautiful maroon, double peonies bloom on my peony bush in the Spring. They seem to all blossom at approximately the same time. Once all have blossomed, that's it. My question is, is it possible to have peonies bloom over an extended period of time and if so, how does one get them to continue blooming?

Answer: Unfortunately, peonies only bloom for that one short period every year. There is nothing you can do to prolong it or make them repeat. If there were, we'd all be doing it!
