Paeonies
Spring/Summer flowering.
Paeonies also like a well prepared garden bed, they also like there own space, too much shade in a woodland garden will sometimes stop them flowering, some of our North Island friends put a bucket of ice on them around the shortest day, (To Chill).
We here in the South Island dont need to do this, our Winters are sufficient. Always watch for Aphids and Botrytis, this is a seasonal condition with some years a problem and other growing seasons there's no issues.

Did You Know?
Paeonies give great colour and are true show stoppers. Each plant sends out multiple stems of blooms which also make fantastic cut flowers.
Cut them at bud stage and they will open in the vase.
Paeonies don’t like competition around their roots so are best planted away from large trees and shrubs. Do not bury Paeony Roots to deep. Spring/Summer flowering.
