Hello...I am new to this community but have been gardening for 5 plus years.
I dug up a peony that was my grandmothers when she passed away. The house was sold and I always loved that plant so before they completely moved in it and during the fall I dug it up and transplanted it my garden. It makes me feel so much better knowing a part of her is here with me.
I planted it and realized it was to deep so fixed that then it started growing little shoots. The first couple of years it grew but no blooms...Which is to expecting of a peony that is transplanted I have done some research on it to an extent. This year it several buds two had bud blast and never got bigger than a pea before it turned brown and crumbly..Two of the blooms got pretty big like a large marble and had pink petals just underneath the green covering of the bud. I noticed all of the other peonies around the neighborhood bloomed and my peony was still big green buds. It opened up slightly not a bloom but enough that i could tell it was flower petals. That's as far as it has gotten. Is this normal will they bloom fully next year? Or is this a issue I can fix? It is in Full sun and watered when its to hot outside. Any help would be greatly appreciated..
