Peonies for Gamy

I adored my grandmother, Marjorie. She was strong, and smart, and independent. She taught me to love piano and politics, how to bake a pie, and garden. Our Daisy is named after her. (Daisy is a nickname, as Marjorie comes from the French word for Daisy.)

My grandmother loved Sarah Bernhardt Peonies. I was thrilled to find some in a catalogue to add to my garden. That lush, frilly, decadent, bloom is what they looked like in my grandmother’s garden. So beautiful!! I got bare roots, which is… the other photo. I have no idea what to do with them. Do you just stick them in the ground like a bulb? I need all your advice please!
