Hi

It did have one stem and after 5 years plus it had grown its own roots from the initial root stock that it had been grafted on to , I bit the bullet and cut it down to the ground and it re shooted from the roots so multi stemmed now

Hi

How old is the one you have ? also do you have a name .

I always do mine as soon as the leaves drop off , dont leave it till January Feb as you know it starts into growth very early in the year , if you can see any immature buds cut just above them just in case ....

I think the secret with Tree Peony is the depth they are planted at , deeper the better so they sucker from underneath which with normal herbaceous peonys deeper planting stops them flowering.

Its about 5 or six years old it has always flowered I have a large yellow one too bought the same time which always flowers as well I dont know the name it looks just like yours huge flowers bigger than my hand I have had to tie the two tall large stems together as its bending with the weight. When I furst bought it it was nt red but purple soon as I put it in tge ground it turned red. I shall take your advice to cut back before January. I did have buried them deeper than normal planting. I shall place a photo on to show you.

I will keep a eye out for the photo , I know what you mean long stem then a flower on top, the stem is too brittle to bend like a rose to produce more side shoots , better than nothing as they are special

Make sure you cut the flower bud off as soon as the flower is over , if you could give it a mulch with compost around the stem now if possible if you havnt already.
