Help! Can I move my poor peony?
I made the beginners mistake of not realizing how huge a hollyhock can get! Last year it did not get over two feet tall and didn't bloom. My peony didn't get over a foot tall. Now the HH is over 6 feet tall and probably 4 feet wide and has just overtaken the poor peony. The peony is still around 12 inches or less right now. If I move it right now will I hurt it? If the only thing it will do it mess up the bloom that's okay, I just don't want to kill it! Or do you think that it will be okay where it is for the season and that I should wait until fall? Actually, will the hollyhock come back next spring...this is it's second season and I deadhead...?
But about the peony.
In the pic is it on the lower right just poking it's head out from under the hollyhock, close to the nandina.
