Will Peonies Rebloom If You Pull the Blooms Off?


Peonies are perennial flowers that reach up to 3 feet tall and 5 feet wide at maturity. These plants produce fragrant flowers up to 6 inches in diameter, making them a popular choice for home gardens, according to Iowa State University Extension.

Time Frame

  • Peonies bloom in May or early June in a variety of colors, including pink, white, red and yellow. Flowers may be single, double, semi-double, Japanese or anemone in form.


  • Peonies bloom only once each year, even if deadheaded. Other benefits of deadheading peonies include improved appearance, increased leaf production and improved flowering next year.


  • Peonies produce seedpods that some gardeners find attractive, according to Oregon State University Extension. These also attract wildlife such as birds. Well-established peonies still produce flowers well when allowed to form seeds. Younger peonies require deadheading to store nutrients for future growth and flower production.
