peony bloom

flowerpower326(z6 nj)May 26, 2009

I planted a peony about 3 years ago and it never bloomed. I dug it up a little to plant it closer to the surface last year and now I have 1 bloom that's just waiting to pop...how much longer do I have to wait? How long does it take for the bloom to open? Any info is appreciated and also tips for more blooms! Thanks in advance! ~M

Enjoy the anticipation of the bloom. The big complaint with peonies is the bloom does not last long enough. You should have more blooms as the diameter of the plant increases over the years. Al
