I have a rather large Tree Peony, can I cut it back.



A couple of years ago one of our Tree Paeonis was very badly hit by the intense cold in the winter. I cut it down to a couple of inches above the ground and left it. It sprang back and flowered the following year.

It's fine to cut back species tree paeonies, I don't think I would risk it with grafted ones.

How do I say thanks?
