cuttings from a tree peony

David Clark asked 13 years ago

I have a tree peoney (around 9 years old) which has been broken near the root for the last year. It normally produces 3-4 beautiful deep lilac flowers each year. It flowered this year but the plant looks miserable. I had to move it this week-and am not sure it will survive. Can I take cuttings or how can I start a new plant. Thanks

Any plant that is weak makes bad cuttings. Moving it would not help, Your best bet would be to try an air layer on some branches and maybe on the daamaged stem.

Wray some compost with most in clear plastic and wait until roots show through.
