The Q&A Archives: Tree Peony Growth Rate

Question: How many feet of growth is expected anually under normal condition in zone seven? does this growth take place through out the growing season or just doing spring and fall?

Answer: Peonies are long-lived, but slow-growing. Garden peonies will usually begin blooming within three years after planting. Tree peonies will begin blooming at about the same time, but will increase slowly in size and bloom quantity. I cannot estimate the amount of growth your tree peony might make. While they are slow growing, they can live for up to a hundred years.

Growth is concentrated during the spring and summer months; as the weather cools, growth slows and eventually stops.
