The Q&A Archives: Non-Blooming Peony

Question: My peony is at least 4 years old and has never bloomed. It looks healthy, is on the east side of house, and gets plenty of sunshine.

Answer: Peonies bloom well only when they experience a pronounced winter chill. They are reluctant to flower when spring days are hot and dry. You may need to provide some afternoon shade and water more frequently when temperatures rise.<br><br>Maybe this will be the year it blooms!
