can you grow peonies in clay soil?

If your soil is clay, then it is good for holding nutrients and water.

It can be prone to get cloggy and water logged, so adding compost or well rotted manure to it will help keep it open.

Peonies like the Ph to be around 6.5 to 7.0 which is slightly acidic.

My garden soil is clay and I have a peony (inherited from previous house owner) which has been doing fine for several years.  I think my soil is slightly on the acidic side.

Thank you  Laurum I will have to get a test kit to test the acidity in the soil
