I live in Florida and I was up North and got a root of peony, planted it in a pot to bring it home. I live in southern Florida and wondered where I should plant this and if you think it will live?

They will have a hard time surviving because it is a bit too warm, but it is worth trying. I would plant it in a semi-shady location, to make sure it gets some sun but also protection from heat.

I will warn you, peonies are notoriously picky about being moved. When you plant or move a peony, it can take 1-6 years before they bloom.
