Planting peonies in Southern USDA Zone 8 and higher is not advisable because of the lack of a consistent cold period needed by peonies.

We only send you the varieties you’ve ordered. You can count on us to never substitute varieties.

Our prices reflect the highest quality bare root peonies available in the United States. All our peonies are certified disease- and pest- free annually by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Because site conditions vary, we do not offer a guarantee or replacements on our plants.

You can order your peonies three ways:

  • ONLINE:   Our Secure Shopping Cart, which allows you to use VISA, MasterCard, or Discover cards. Your credit card will be charged at time of ordering to reserve your peonies until they are shipped in the fall. WE CANNOT PROCESS PICK UP ORDERS ONLINE.
  • MAIL-ORDER:   Print off our Printable Order Form and mail in. WE OFFER A 7% PRODUCT DISCOUNT FOR CHECK, MONEY ORDER AND CASHIER’S CHECK ORDERS MAILED IN BEFORE PRODUCTS ARE SOLD OUT AND/OR BY THE LAST ORDER DATE. We accept VISA, MasterCard, or Discover cards. Your credit card will be charged at time of ordering to reserve your peonies until they are shipped in the fall.
