My peony bed has mondo grass growing among the peonies. Is this a problem? It has not seemed to degrade the peony blooms.

This should be fine as long as the peonies continue to thrive. You should be sure to fertilize in the fall and again in the spring with a quality organic fertilizer like Espoma Plant-tone as the mondo grass may compete with the peonies for nutrients. If you notice that the peonies seem to be declining, you may want to thin out some of the mondo grass plants right around and under the peony.
