The first pic looks like my Shimadaijin tree peony and the second one could be Taiyo.

I think I got my k and j mixed up. I meant shimane chojuraku.

Thanks, but I don't think it is shimane chojuraku.
The flower in the third photo have whiter/lighter edges on the petals, while shimane chojuraku is not so lighter/whiter on the edges of the petals.

How old are these trees? After about 10 years, mine is still less than 12" tall and might produce 3 flowers a year.

It gets plenty of sunlight and water.....
Maybe I need to pay more attention to fertilizer.

RE: Help to ID tree peonies

Emerogork2, what is the name of your tree peony? 3 flowers are too less and 12" are too short for a 10 years old tree peony.
Maybe you give them too much water? Peonies don't like too much water.

I am not sure how many years of peonies in the photos.

RE: Help to ID tree peonies

I do not know the variety name but will check to see if there is a tag n the tree.

I don't think too much water as I do not water that area all that much.

Is it possible that being too deep might stunt its growth? I don't know that it is but that is something I can change.

For a while there, a pine tree was encroaching on it's sun supply but that tree has been gone for about 3 years. A hedge about 10' in back of it causes shade after about 2pm or so but it gets full morning sun until then.

Do they do any better in a raised bed?

I have not done much for winter protection, should I be?
There is no damage from winter as I do not have to prune out any dead wood and I don't see any damage from animals or insects.

RE: Help to ID tree peonies

Emerogork2, r u sure it is a tree peony? or it is a herbaceous peony?

Tree peony need to plant deeper than herbaceous peony, they do better in a raised bed and well drained places. All sounds o.k. I don't know what's the problem.

Maybe you can test the acidity of soil. They don't like very acid soils.

Maybe you can set up a new topic and post some pictures and more people will give you advices.
