I was just looking @ June issue of MS Living magazine which has an article on PE. I have never purchased peonies before and am interested in buying the 4 coral ones for fall shipment. I'm wondering if there are other vendors I should consider?

I have not ordered Peonyenvy. I see tho, that you can get 3 or the 4 from Hollingsworth Peonies and they are 20, 22, and 28. And he has other corals to choose from.

I would use caution.

I ordered 5 herbaceous peonies from a co-op purchasing from Hollingsworth in 2010. All survived and bloomed this year with a couple blooming last year. There was a good selection of the routine cultivars, most at slightly more than 1/2 price. A friend of our family, through marriage, is a custom cake baker. She had a sign "Good cakes aren't cheap and cheap cakes aren't good." Words to consider when buying plants. The big names will always be a bargain in the end.

Thanks Polly - I am ordering from Hollingsworth but after some issues with a few daylily sellers the last headache I need is one from PE. I have never owned a peony but I'm giving up a daylily bed for some coral and white.

Hollingsworth has always been wonderful. Do watch for the co-op.

Hi Polly - Thanks for the heads up! When does the co-op usually happen? I'm on the road a lot and will try to make sure to watch for it.

Soon, right Jerry? I have purchased from them 2 years in a row.

In fact here is the one from last year, if you want to check some prices.

I have not seen the one for this year announced, though.

The co-op I ordered from was organized by Ticker, I think. Everything went smooth as silk with no issues. Mamajack has many co-ops running all the time, almost like a cottage industry. Normally, any problems with co-ops is with new organizers unfamiliar with all the process involved.
