Re: Tree peonies revisited


Like roses, the suckers arecoming from below the graft.  Yes cut them off.
Your buds sound the right size and shape.  When they open they'll be pretty
heavy so you might want to put some stakes in place to help support them,
especially if it is windy.  As the plant gets bigger over the years it will
put on more wood and be stronger and not need staking - unless it's in a
windy area.

Also, when the buds open, prepare to swoon.
