Peony Supports

About Peony Supports

In addition to preventing drooping and damage, using sturdy supports for your peony blooms offers several other advantages. By keeping the flowers elevated, supports create better air circulation around the plant, reducing the risk of fungal diseases that thrive in damp and crowded conditions. Improved airflow helps to keep the foliage and flowers dry, promoting overall plant health and longevity. Furthermore, proper support encourages optimal sun exposure for the peony plant, which is vital for photosynthesis and the production of energy for healthy growth and abundant blooms.

When selecting grow-through supports for your peonies, choose ones that are appropriate for the size and weight of the plant. Installing the supports early, ideally, before the peony starts to grow vigorously, allows you to guide the stems through the support framework easily. As the plant develops, it will naturally grow through the support, creating a seamless and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Waiting until the plant has already grown significantly may make it challenging to position the support properly without causing damage to the plant. By being proactive and planning ahead, you can ensure that your peonies have the necessary support from the start, leading to beautiful, upright blooms that can be enjoyed throughout the season.
