Beautiful frilly Peony
We bought a house 3 yrs ago that had 3 well established peonies that had been blooming profusely.
Last year, however, one of them came up in spring but much smaller than years prior, and it did not produce buds or blooms.
It came up again this year but smaller still, with no buds. The foliage is thick and healthy, but the plant is shrinking.
It is located near but well spaced from the other 2 which are doing great. Our location is Storm Lake, Iowa in northwestern Iowa. The 3 plants are located in a bed on the south side of our garage and get adequate sunlight.
The only difference in the 3 peonies is that the "problem child" had frilly frilly fancy blooms while the other 2 have traditional blooms. What do you think, and what advice can you offer? Thank you!
