I live in Ohio (zone 5) and my peony bush is not blooming. Someone else I know is having the same problem. I water it regularly and it is in direct sun. Any thoughts on this? It looks healthy, nice and green and sturdy, but no buds or blooms.

Thanks.

If they are not setting buds then they are planted to deep. Peony need to be planted shallow. If you can see some of the root when planting that is ok. So you need to break up the roots and replant. You will probably have plants left over to give away. The earlier post is correct on the ants. Ants help them to bloom.

How old is your peony? To bloom, a couple things are necessary. The tuber needs at least three eyes to bloom. Also, don't plant the tuber so deep that the eyes are covered. And do not get rid of the ants! Some gardeners say the ants are necessary for the buds to open.
