By now your peony should be well up and in foliage, if not in bud, Remouse (unless you are in the coldest of cold climates…I am in Zone 5 and mine are knee-high or better). It certainly doesn’t plan to put on a big show this year, the way it sounds. So I don’t think you can do any harm at this point…try a rescue mission. Work very carefully so you don’t pierce the rhizome, and see what you find (then send us a jpeg!). Normally peonies are moved in fall, not spring, when circumstances are more normal. Oh, and welcome.
