Funny you should say 'them', Tina, as I did have another one (white), which was also in a pot, but died last winter. Funny, but there's been many more frosty nights this extended winter, yet this red one has sprung into growth early. How high and wide do they grow ?

They must be tough, then, musn't they ? Wonder how mine would do planted in the soil ? It's heavy clay, and poor drainage in parts. Perhaps it's safer leaving it in the pot, as I can shelter it by the wall in winter.

Thanks for the update, nutcutlet, and apologies for the late reply - been away with work. I'll put it back outside then, and keep everything xxxed !

Thanks for your reply. It was out on the patio. It's 2 years old, but not flowered yet, and didn't do this last winter. Can't understand it, as it was really cold here in January (and got colder every month since !)

Hi folks - hope you Tree Paeony experts can advise me. Mine is in a pot, but burst into growth here in the cold damp North West of England - in January !! The lead bud and one side bud are the two that are growing, but there are other buds still dormant, I'm pleased to say.I've brought it into the coolest part of the house, but still not cool enough to stop it growing. Trouble is, it's now wilting, and some of the leaves look to be dying back. Will it survive ?
