I am curious what a flower like this would sell for. I have some interest for a potential buyer. I know some plants can sell for $200. How much should I ask for it? How long would it take to plant a bulb and have it start blooming like in the picture?

It's a white peony. Google "white peony" and check the shopping links
Something like

Added info:

It's an herbaceous peony, which is not uncommon and would be surprised if anyone were interested in paying much for it.

If it were a well-grown Tree Peony, that is a substantially different plant that sometimes collectors would pay significant sums for.

It is a very nice heavily flowered herbaceous Peony, but not a nest egg investment.

So if someone nearby wants to buy it from you, the best time to move these is early fall. Google for best method to dig and replant.
It is a bigger plant than they would get from mail order, and should bloom like this next year and beyond if transplanted properly and cared for. Also giv eit good care now while it is waiting to be moved.
