Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Denise-Yes, you can grow peonies in pots. Peonies have large root systems so you want to use a large pot. It is best to use a pot at least 1 1/2 feet deep and 18 to 24 inches wide. The pot should always be deeper than it is wide. Lighter colored pots are best as they don't absorb as much heat during times of hot direct sunlight. Always make sure the pot has drainage holes in the bottom as these plants need a well draining soil. Using a potting soil mixed with top soil and perlite or pumice works well for me. A mix such as this will hold enough water at the same time will drain well when watered a couple of times a week. Many of the potting mixes used alone can hold too much water at times. The peonies are susceptible to root rot if grown in too wet a soil. A good location for your peonies would be where they get light filtered shade. They do well with 4 hours of sunlight a day but this direct sunlight should be morning light and not hot afternoon direct sunlight.

Please ask if you have any other questions.
