The Q&A Archives: Lost Peonies

Question: A few years ago Burpee offered a peony that had a fern type leaf. I believe it may have been shown at the World's Fair. I believe it originally came from Russia? Will Burpee have them again or are they available somewhere else now? I keep lookingbut haven't seen them again.

Answer: Burpee does not currently offer the fern-leaf peony but I have located the fern leaf variety 'Itoba' at K. Van Bourgondien & Sons at 1-800-552-9996. P.S. She is a lady of Japanese origin.
