Well, I finally got tired of waiting, although I had missed one no show. I had not missed it til it started growing Monday. I found another that barely came up, it is a late one, but it will not bloom this year, just a few inches tall. just dug up coral sunset-i don't think I had missed that one either 3 weeks ago when I first started this thread. Coral Sunset has been here at least 6 years, blooming 5 years. The roots were rotted, all except just a bit. I cut off all the rot, seems like a bit is still alive, but no sign of an eye. Did not really know what to do, so just let it dry a bit and replanted it. I dug up Joker an Coral n Gold, rotten also. I don't think Coral n gold has a chance, what was not mushy was really hard, but I did the same with it. Joker did not have any eye either, but there was a good firm piece that had no mush, I feel most confident about it. I bought a Coral Sunset from Lowe's, I hope it really is what the tag said. I really did not know you could kill a peony. I accidentally sprayed one with weed killer once, it sulked the rest of that season, but bloomed fine the next year.
None of these plants are very close, and several Sarah Bernharts and old unnamed peonies in the general area, they look great. Oh well, maybe next year will be better.
