I planted a few peony roots for the 1st time last Fall and they have sprouted out. The shoots are about 8 inches tall and I can see a little bud on them. Will the plants grow any taller this year? What happens after the flower blooms? Does the plant continue to grow more leaves and grow taller?
I wasnt expecting any blooms this year, but the roots I got did have some nice fat 'eyes' when I planted them in the ground last fall. So I was hopeful.
Also, for each root, I see about 3-6 shoots in the ground. Am I right in assuming that next year I will see double or triple the number of shoots?
