Question on Peonies

Gardening Reference » Gardening in 2006

I want to transplant two different groups of peonies. Can I do that now. They are very old plants and they haven't bloomed for at least 3 years. I know the problem is they don't get enough light, as they are under a sugar maple tree. Since they haven't bloomed in forever, would it hurt to go ahead and move them? [dunno] Any suggestions would be appreciated?

You should wait and move them in the fall when they will have a better chance of recovering from the move. Since Peonies resent root disturbance, they may not bloom for a few years. It's also important not to plant the crown more than an inch or so below the soil surface. Planting the crown too deep will cause them not to bloom. Since they are old plants, you may want to divide them so you'll have more plants.
