i have three peony bushes in my front yard. Two are green and getting leaves. These same two last year also produced flowers. I have one that is small and have small leaves on one side and none on the other side and did not produce flowers last year but did the year before. They are planted in the same soil. What could be the problem and what should I do.

If only half of the plant is developing foliage, there's something wrong with the root system. You won't know until you dig it up. Although the soil is the same as with your other plants, insects and disease problems can compromise the root system. You may be able to dig the plant and cut away any damaged or dead roots and then replant. You won't know until you dig it up. Best wishes with your peony!
