What tools should I prepare for pruning my Peony?

Peony
Paeonia lactiflora
Learn More
Peony doesn’t take much special equipment for pruning. A basic pair of scissors or garden shears should do the trick. It’s a good idea to ensure they are clean before use—you can soak them for thirty minutes in a solution of one part bleach diluted in nine parts water. This reduces the risk of spreading disease lingering on contaminated equipment into your flower garden. Some gardeners avoid using tools altogether and merely pinch off the blossoms with their fingertips. That can be a faster technique, but you run a larger risk of bruising the plant stems or accidentally pulling them out of the ground completely.
Peony (Paeonia lactiflora)
Peony
A species of Peonies, Also known as Common garden peony, White peony
Botanical name: Paeonia lactiflora
Genus: Peonies
Description
Peony is a perennial herbaceous bushy plant native to central and eastern Asia. It is highly regarded for its lush, white, pink, or crimson rose-like flowers, with pronounced yellow stamens. White peony was first introduced to England in the mid-18th century, and today there are several hundred cultivars common in temperate gardens around the world.
Garden Use
Peonies are famous ornamental plants, and are easily maintained in pots or gardens. Peonies can be divided into two groups: Paeonia lactiflora (Chinese herbaceous peony) is a perennial herb, while Paeonia suffruticosa (tree peony) is a perennial woody plant. Tree peonies bloom in late spring, and Chinese herbaceous peony blooms in late spring and early summer. The flowers of peonies are large, fragrant, bright, and colorful.
