Bad Weather Peonies

Rain Resistant

Some peonies don't stand up well to rain and wind — the petals come off, and the blossom looks very ragged. Here are some varieties that are very rain and wind resistant:

First Arrival, Krinkled White, Krinkled White, Sword Dance.

Heat resistant

Peonies prefer cold winters; they generally do best in Hardiness zones 3 - 8. However, there are some peonies which are particularly good at standing up to hot climates. Here are some examples:

Buckeye Belle, Early Scout, and Miss America.
