PLANT PROPAGATION
Propagation methods: crown division, cuttings, grafting, seeds. Scrub can be divided when replanting. Leaves, also soil from roots, should be removed. Unhealthy roots are cut off; healthy roots are cut off and left 15 cm long. Scrub can be divided into parts with 3-5 crown buds. 4-5 years old scrubs are best for this propagation method. It is advisable to soak tubers in clay, which contains 0.5 to 1.0 percent of copper sulphate. The flower is propagated by cuttings in June, before blooming. Top of stem should be nipped off. Leaf cuttings with 2 cm long Stem istaken. Woody stem (2 cm long) is cut lengthwise and leaves are shortened. Growth stimulators can be used as well. Rooting lasts for 2 months at 25°C, and at 90 percent relative humidity. Peonies do not come true from seed (the only exception being large populations of species peonies that are isolated from other peonies) so each seedling is something new. The popular cultivars of yesterday and today do not come true from seed.
