Transplanting Peonies on the Oregon Coast

Asked September 11, 2017, 2:21 PM EDT

When is the best time to transplant peonies on the Oregon Coast. We live 8 miles east of Waldport, Oregon and planning to put in a lawn and I would like to get my peonies moved before we start with the lawn.

Thanks for your question about your peonies. Fall is the time to divide and transplant peonies, as listed on this OSU calendar. Although I couldn't find an Oregon Extension article on peonies, this Iowa State article is a helpful one. Hopefully, you'll have a spot all picked out and prepared so they get in the ground as soon as possible. Hope this is helpful. Good luck!
