|Is this a new tree that hasn't bloomed before, Yan?|

|It can be weather factors such as timing of bud development and cold weather or extremely wet weather timed with a certain stage of bud development.|

|No, Liz, this tree peony is about 8 years old, had been a good performer every year. I don't know what factors will make a mature tree do so, I had no changed anything to take care of it, same regiment just like every year.|
And I google it online, found a lot of different answers, I don't know what to do to help it.

|What has changed? Did you have a much milder/worse/drier/wetter winter? It would seem environmental reason are the most likely culprit, like Tracey said. Too cold weather at a critical time...maybe?|

I found just this TP is aborting buds, it's a Chinese variety ( normally the Chinese one will be the earliest TP to bloom), I had to wait and see how the Japanese one doing, may be by another two weeks I can tell by then.
As long as it's not dying I will be ok.lol

|Sometimes a bud will abort. It doesn't mean the entire plant is at stake. It is unfortunate, because we always want to see every last bloom we can. Your plant is likely very healthy. Some year's weather conditions are more forgiving than others. Liz knows this all too well.|

|We did had a very mild Fall & Winter, only couple weeks of cold weather, is that what tricked it?|
