Is there such a thing as a 'standard' Peony Rose plant.?.Or have I got something that noboby else has.?.
I had planted a peony rose tuber/bulb two years ago.last year when it came up,it grew to about 2 foot tall,but just on one long stem,with very healthy leaves on top.This year,it's growing the exact same..One long stem with again some very healthy leaves on top..Is there such a thing as a 'standard' Peony Rose?
My plants root is not a tuber looking 'bunch' but only just a 'splayed-foot' looking sort,with no real depth to it



They do have a long stalk with leaves towards the top but when you get more than one stem it looks less like a standard. so no not a true standard. the tuber is pretty much as you describe, not like the typical dahlia tuber for example. Can you load a photo so we can see what you mean?

welcome to GoY too.

Many thanks for you're response.I've just found this growsonyou site this afternoon.Here is a pic of it that I've just taken a few minutes ago.
When I had first planted it last year,I planted it about 4" deep.And it grew with just the one long stem..I had re-planted it yesterday just about 2" deep in case it was the depth that I had planted wrong...I had spread out it's 'splayed-foot' like roots,and I'm just wondering if I've now planted it correctly.( In a tub this time rather than in the garden.) it's leaves this time, like last years, look really healthy although it didn't flower last year.
Thanks once again .

is it perhaps a tree peony?
