Peony growth stages
- 27 June 2023
Peonies are one of the most beautiful garden plants. When given the right care, they can survive anywhere worldwide. The life cycle of peonies begins from the ground every year. During fall, the plant goes into dormancy. But what are the peony growing stages? In this blog, we will explain every stage!
Stage 1: Shoot development
The first growing stage of a peony is when the shoots start growing after there is an increase in temperature and water absorption. This period, regrowth of the peony begins after the frost season.
Stage 2: Shoot emergence
In this stage, the shoots start to emerge above ground, and the shoots slowly start to appear. Meanwhile, the baby leaves will remain folded. After that, the shoots will start to stretch quickly as the stems and leaves mature.
Stage 3: Leaf opening
As the leaves and stems will continue to grow, the shoots begin to stretch. This results in the opening of curved leaflets and the emergence of the flower bud. When this peony growth stage ends, the stem grows up to 2/3 feet tall.
Stage 4: Leaf extension
In this stage, the leaves start to expand outwardly. This results in them taking their final shape. Besides, the flower buds also start to appear on top of the upper leaves.
Stage 5: Bloom bud expansion
In this growing stage, the bloom buds get significantly larger. The buds will develop to the size of a golf ball.
Stage 6: Bud coloring
This is the stage where the bloom buds will open. Besides, the color of the blossom becomes very visible.
Stage 7: Flower opening
This is the final peony growth stage. This is the period when the flowers open up and start displaying the significant features of the cultivars.
