    Beautiful flower head !! I have one Peony I planted last year, just flowered this week, two flower buds on it. How many buds would a typical peony produce each year once established ?

    I think it varies on the variety Mick,on my tree peony same variety planted in soil
    I've got five buds,on the one shown three.I think once established it will increase yearly.

    Congratulations on your tree peony Terry!
    I have never grown tree peonies myself, but in my previous house I had a herbaceous peony, Paeonia lactiflora 'Sarah Bernhardt' – which I inherited with the house so I had no idea how old it was. It could have been as old as the gardens in those Victorian houses, which means that it would have been planted in late 50s or early 60s. Who knows. It was absolutely gorgeous, but very difficult to take photos of the whole plant. The photos here are from 2014, I moved away in May 2015 and had to leave the peony behind. It would have been impossible to take it with me – it was HUGE. And the new garden here where I am now needed months of work before I could start to plant anything. So I hope the new tenant is enjoying the peony now. That last time I had it flowering it produced 52 flowers and each stalk always had to be propped up individually with a bamboo cane or else they would all had been on the ground horizontally. The flowers were huge and gorgeous. Peonies can live for a very long time and they will produce more and more flowers for every year you have them.
