Does anyone know what is going on at the base of this Peony? the picture does not look as yellow as it is in reality. Is this some kind of fungi? is helpful or harmful?
Update: This photo was taken last night. After a bit of research it looked as if it was “vomit fungi” nasty name
I wasn’t totally sure because it wasn’t exactly
like the images I saw.
However this morning I looked at it and noticed how it had changed and now appears to look like the images seen on the internet.
Commonly appears when thick layer of mulch is present and can be scraped around, thin out the layers and I think all will be well. Thank you for input, you were spot on.
