Tree peony seedlings emerging in the fall
I've been planting tree peony seedlings in several different batches for the last couple years, and with the recent cool down, I'm seeing some seedlings sprout leaves too instead of only germinating a root like they are supposed to at this time of the year.
It seems like if they manage to produce leaves this late in the season, they won't have enough time to build up energy, and they will literally be sitting ducks as the winter comes. Is there anything that can be done to save these?
I also planted 34 huge Tibetian tree peony seeds in various spots through my flower beds. Based on the size of these seeds, my guess is that they may be harder to germinate than most tree peony seeds. Will these manage to sprout roots in a couple months and sprout next spring?
