The deer have constantly eaten it down. This year I transplanted it into a new spot in the enclosed garden and it bloomed! It was only a couple of feet tall. It looked like a lollipop as there were no side branches or leaves. I replanted it a bit deeper this time, as I read that tree peonies are supposed to be planted with their grafts buried. I may dig it up and bury even deeper, as the graft was barely covered.
I had to weed them out of the lawn when I was little. It did not make me hate weeding now. Thanks for helping me with these games as I am trying to stave off Alzheimer's. I turn 70 in a few days. My grandmother had it, but my mother did not. Grandma had to be put in a home. My husband is afraid I will leave the stove on, as I have let things burn unattended. (scary!)
did you try taking vitamins...I take ...Phosphatidyl - Serine...saw a friends mom go thru it...sure scared me...no one in my family ever had it...lots of cancer though...you can google it and see how it works...few of my nieces are nurses and they read up on it...
We used to have a rototiller, but no more. Just as well. It is too heavy for me to use now. After establishing a bed, I now keep the integrity of the soil, but just lightly cultivate the top to turn in the weeds. I use a lot more mulch now.
