Rose mummy I have a peony in a crowded bed surrounded by geraniums as well, it has flowered repeatedly. Last year I cut it down far too early and panicked it wouldn't give me flowers this year. It did give me 3 stunners.... Not as many as last year but lesson learnt!! Peony are actually quite tough plants but you do need to support them. Buy yourself an excellent plant support to give it a chance next year. When the shoots appear next year feed it and love it lol. My peony is also in a shaded border and does do well !
