Yup. Soooo tempting. I went through them all and even choosing fairly inexpensive ones was over $400 in a heartbeat. Didn't order anything. But they had some really interesting hybrids you don't see very often.

I grabbed up a few Saunders and 2 Biggers--Early Windflower, Heritage, Janice, Fern B and Pinnacle as well as Burma (Lins). I'm trying to concentrate on hybridizers who have peonies that do well in CO, these three are favorites. Maxine Wolfe looked so different from the ones I have that I got that one as well. Tempted by several others, might go back later to see what's left. So much for my resolution not to add next fall.....

If you ever have a chance, take a trip to the nursery!

Don't give up LG, Harvey usually has extras after he does inventory of the fall orders. Check back in October and good luck! Thumbs up

It's a nice one, LG. I got it from Bannisters when they were doing their retirement sale last year. I've seen it a few other places as well, hopefully someone else will offer it when they put out the 2017 catalogs.

So I just placed an order for Blonde Vision, Carnation Bouquet, and Maestro. Not that I need anymore red, but Maestro was such a beautiful flower from Tracey's pics last year that I have to get it. And also the price is right for my humble budget! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious!

Maestro is also one of those that CO weather takes out every spring. I did have a single tall stem last year, gives me hope for the future! Hope you love Blonde Vision as much as I do, can't wait to see how it does for you! Hope it increases quickly and looks amazing!

So 'Blonde Vision' and Fern B were my two selections. Both right up my alley.

Karen, you'll love 'Maestro'. Growing in the field, it won me over. You'll be pleased.
