The Q&A Archives: Paeonia Tenuifolia

Question: How do I care for the Fern Leaf Peony. Does it like full sun or partial shade? What about feeding?
Any helpful information would be appreciated.
Thank You.

Answer: Paeonia tenuifolia laciniata is a hybrid perennial that grows about 20" inches high and spreads about 18" inches. A Fernleaf Peony differs from its more common relatives in its smaller size and the dissected, finely cut foliage. The flowers can be single or double depending on the cultivar. Provide sun and ordinary garden soil. You can find links to your plant by visiting the Michigan State University site:
