I had this plant now for three years and it has not flowered or had any buds! Bought from a private house, where its double in the ground had yellow flowers, I was assured it was the same. My question is, does anyone know what plant is this? My thoughts were perhaps a yellow Peony? What ever it is, will it ever flower? Puzzled please help.

Welcome!

I think it is a tree peony. You might have planted it too deep. Peony needs to be planted no more than 2-3 inched below the surface. It should flower the second year.

Thank you Pitimpinai, I'm intriqued. I dont think its in too deep, there is a pink Peony right next door to it-right hand side of picture.

Was the pink peony planted at the same time and at the same depth as the yellow peony?
