I have found that it can be true, peonies may not bloom the year after splitting/transplanting. Give them time to acclimate.
Peony info and care
Why are my peonies not blooming?
If you aren’t seeing blooms after a few years, there are a fewpossibilities:
1. Buds killed by late frost, fungal disease or thrips – spray with a pesticide labeled for peonies. Follow label directions.
2. Planted too close to trees and shrubs – need more nourishment.
3. Planted too deep – replant with eye buds 2 inches below soil line.
4. Ground too dry – water to the bottom of the roots.
5. Prematurity – too young – let them develop.
6. Excessive hot weather – no remedy – wait till next
The first year after planting, the peony may be about six inches high with few stems. It probably will not bloom the first year because it is developing a root system. In the second year the stems usually double and growth is taller with blooms nearer normal. By the third year the plant doubles again and the blooms are normal in every way. After the third year growth is slower and full size is usually attained by the eighth or ninth year. The adage for peonies is “1st year sleep, 2nd year creep, 3rd year leap.” Plants that have been well cared for often live longer than their owners. Peonies make excellent cut flowers and can be cut when either fully opened or when the buds are “marshmallow” soft. Deadheading of the fragrant blooms should be done before seed production occurs.
