Moving a small peony

I have a small peony that must be moved. Will I for sure kill it? In in Oregon and its cool and rainy right now, might hit 80 next weekend if we are lucky but it's 60s 70s all week. It's leggy and I think would enjoy a sunnier spot anyway :)

RE: Moving a small peony

I've had to move smaller peonies in early summer and didn't kill them. Try to move as large of a root ball with surrounding dirt to give them a better chance and you might want to shade them a bit if they're going into a very sunny position, just until they get over the shock of transplanting. Even if they seem to die down, I've seen them come back the next year in the spring. If you're dividing and exposing the roots I'd wait until fall. Good luck!
