I've purchased this plant from a hobby grower yesterday. It will be my first peony. The soil in our region (kind of sandy clay) should be perfect to grow a peony. It seems important not to plant them to deep, otherwise they will not flower. The grower gave me the tip that the best way to check this is in february. If you softly brush your hand over the frozen ground you must feel the noses of the peony. If you don't feel the noses they are planted to deep and you have to lift them up a little. I hope to post photos of it soon.
