Blooms turned black!
Last year I bought a peony bulb from walmart (the kind in a green bag), and planted it near the end of summer. I had forgotten what it was and it grew a little then winter came.
Now the begining of spring comes and it's growing and I had now idea what it was until I looked on here.
Now about two weeks ago I noticed a bulb with ants all over it. It opend a little and I could see pink and white. Now the bloom looks dead. The bloom turned brown and dried up. There are no other blooms at all even though it is a bush plant. The plant looks healthy but the boom doesn't. My neighbor has two that get full sun and she does nothing to them and they are georgous. I really don't know much about peonies and I am trying to learn. I belive I read they need full sun, so do I need to dig it up and move the plant, or do I need to wait until the fall?
