Peony Tree

The peony tree that I purchased several years ago has had a tough time. Last year we moved the peony to an extremely sunny spot and it flowered for the first time. I was hopeful that this year the plant would really begin to flourish.

Unfortunately, the peony was moved during the walkway construction and once again placed in a shady spot. I know that transplanting the peony in the spring was not good for the plant's health. I do not want to move the peony again until the fall.

I am concerned that this plant may not survive in its current location. My only hope is that the despite being uprooted, the peony has managed to flower. The constant rain had bruised the petals, but it is still attractive.
