Taiyo Peony Tree Yellow Leaves

Posted by wdw.addict 10 (My Page) on

I purchased a lovely 4 year old Taiyo peony tree in a 5 gallon pot last year with 3 buds. This year I have no buds and yellowing leaves. The tree is still in the pot and when there is sun it gets 6 hours of morning/early afternoon sun. I did not fertilize it.

I hope the yellowing leaves is not a sign that the tree is dying. Does anyone have suggestions how to reverse or improve the leaf color?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Taiyo Peony Tree Yellow Leaves

Do you notice the leaf veins are green but the leaf is yellow? this condition is called chlorosis and generally is caused by an iron deficiency. I would recommend a good fertilizer containing all the minors. If you intend to keep it permanently in a container, I would repot into a larger container with a long life well drained mix. Tree peonies do not need as much chilling as herbaceous but in zone ten you may be having a chilling deficiency. Al
