Hi! I just planted peonies for the first time ever: pink chiffon, my petite cherie, angel cheeks, and ivory victory. I made sure to get them with buds already on them so I knew they'd flower this year. Some are already approaching "marshmallow" stage and I'm debating cutting for arrangements versus leaving to enjoy the blooms on the plant. Thoughts?

You should enjoy them any way you want. Cutting the flowers or leaving them on the plant will not affect the health of the Peony.
