Broken limp on Tree Peony
I just bought a new tree peony. The plant was fine at the store but a branch either broke while in my car (more than likely) or the wind broke the limb.
I noticed it while mowing the lawn. I immediately put the 18" limb (the only one with a bud on it) in some water in the hope that it would form roots and could possibly plant it in the fall.
Will a tree peony form roots like this? If so is there anything else I can do to help the limb survive? The break was about 1 inch above the root ball.
The rest of the plant still looks great, just lost about 40 % of its width.
I am new to peonies. I still am waiting for the fist bloom on the ones I do have in the ground.
