Wait until the leaves yellow in fall. That’s your sign that the peony’s larder is fully stocked and it’s OK to trim. Throw out the foliage with the trash to make sure it doesn’t harbor diseases and insects over the winter.
Thanks I will get right on that!
I live in Canada and I have already cut mine back as I do every year. I'd say right now is a good time is you get frost and snow.
i live in the uk nd mine are cut bac
I cut mine back about now. ...usually leave 4-6 inches tall. I always think I killed them and then they pop up in the spring!!
Thanks for the height I should leave!
Fall is the time to cut back the peony foliage. Once the foliage starts to deteriorate it is ok to cut back stalks. Some times this happens in late summer, just depends on the year.
