I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, Anne. You may only get a few (or no) flowers the first year, but each year they get bigger and better. At least by the second year (if not the first), you are going to want to put supports around them so the heavy flowers don't flop --especially after it rains. If you look closely in this picture, you will see the wire supports around each peony plant. They are about knee high. By the third year, the peonies are so big that you can't even see the supports any more. For example, look at this picture http://www.garden-share.com/photo/gardenmay212010r2-015?context=alb...  and you'll notice that the plants are all standing nice and straight and you can't see the supports at all.

Anne, our peonies start to come up when the forsythias and hyacinths start blooming. We are in northeast NJ, and that is early April for us, so I would GUESS that your peonies might start coming up in early to mid March. Please keep me posted!

Thanks Clare. I live in the Southeastern part of North Carolina. Now I know what to look for. =)
