Peony Problems

//Peony Problems

We suspect that it’s too late for your peony, but just in case… do NOT fertilize it at this point. Wait for active growth. Right now it’s just trying to survive and feeding will cause it to spend its last reserves on new foliage. Water when soil is dry several inches down. Saturated soil will kill the roots, resulting in wilting. Was the soil amended prior to planting? Organic matter will create air spaces and allow for good drainage. Peonies like soil high in humus. Mulch to mitigate soil temperatures and water levels. The sun/shade balance is fine. Peonies need to be planted fairly shallowly, or they will not bloom.
