Beautiful as I would expect. I have been waiting for their 2018 website to come up. They have a great selection of herbaceous and itoh peonies. I just hate it when the site comes up with some varieties sold out already.

Wish they'd put a bigger variety of pictures out of the new ones! Can't decide if I'm going to be kicking myself for not ordering!

I don't think the new Itoh worth the money, mostly they just looks similar to each other except color, and mostly have shrinked and distorted flowers.

New Millennium is only 125 from Swenson's, which is the cheapest I've ever seen it! It really is one of my favorites if you want to splurge!

Solaris had it for $120 but it's sold out. Beautiful flowers, LG! It's on my long wish list. Hilarious!

You guys are killing me. I have around 15 coming this fall and no place figured out to put them. I want Joker and now I want New Millenium also. Groan. Anya, maybe I should cancel my trip to Portland and use the money for more peonies. Hilarious!

I wish they would put the detail information on the website, like what it will cost and the agenda.

I imagine Swensons will continue to have new introductions from Roger Anderson (as they are the ones who bought him out the last time he sold his stock) as they will work with him to register and introduce his new cultivars. Very much like Hollingsworth is not Don Hollingsworth's business anymore but that Don is still hybridizing and working with his old business to continue to select, register and introduce his latest work. Happy to see that their work still continues on even into "retirement".
