Bare Root Peony

Anonymous added on March 1, 2014 | Answered

I purchased some bare root peonies approx. 2 weeks ago. I have planted them but noticed the root has turned white. Can someone advise me if this is normal or if there is anything I can do to save them?

As long as the roots are still pliable and not brittle, they are fine. If they are brittle, then check that the tuber is still firm. If it is still firm, then it will regrow new roots.
