SAD peony...is it a goner?
Hi - I inherited a peony that came with our house, and know little about their care. I divided and transplanted it last spring (it was in full shade). One piece was quite happy this spring, and the other was small but leafing. Then we had our backyard put in, and the workers were told specifically to leave the peonies alone. Instead, they plowed one (the BLOOMING one) under, and pulled the other out and left it sitting in the sun all day. I replanted it, but it hasn't recovered; its leaves have died (like after I transplanted it), but the rhizome still feels firm. I've been watering it...how much water does it want? Can I do anything for it?
