Protect peonies from flopping under the weight of their large, heavy blossoms, and enjoy your flowers all season long!
All you need is a grid or hoop-style stake. When your peony reaches 1 ft. tall, push the stake into the soil over the young plant. Then, gently thread the stem tips through each opening, just like we did with this grid stake.

About two weeks later, pull the stake up a few inches. This gives the plant continued support. As your peonies bloom, flowers stand straight and tall, and the stake becomes harder and harder to spot!
