winterizing roses and peonies

Anonymous added on September 12, 2015 | Answered

How should I winterize my roses and peonies? I live in Columbus, GA (southwest Georgia). I have read NOT to cover peonies at all in our climate for better flowering. Is this correct? I covered with leaves and pine straw last winter and did not get any blooms on my peonies, which had bloomed in prior years. Thank you.

I live in Colorado and do not ever cover my peonies here, I believe your climate is more mild so see no reason to cover them. For rosebushes I am provided a couple article links here for you: >> https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/roses/mounding-roses.htm

You could also look up some nearby rose societies and Consulting Rosarians on the American Rose Society website and consult with them on best practices for your exact area.
