Twisted peony stem #410916

Asked June 30, 2017, 11:49 AM EDT

A client of mine has some peony that are a family heirloom and are old. Th3 stems on 20% of the stalks are curvey, like a corkscrew. Um wondering if they are sick or what I can do to solve these important plants.

Thank you for the question.  We can be of better service with more information.  Please send us photos of the entire plant and close up of the curled stems.  Sometimes herbicide damage can cause bizarre twisted leaves and stems but we need to see it to help.

Thank you.
