Mary, are you sure? I don't see that mentioned anywhere on there website. Maybe they have changed policy?

I tried to order a few parasols last year and the order went through but then received an email saying they no longer ship to Alaska. I guess I could try again.

Peony was $79 but shipping was $59 - Too rich for my blood - the postage, not the peony

Karen did you order anything? Thanks for posting the info about the sale.

I ordered TP Coral Terrace from them several weeks ago as a gift for someone in NY, I wish I had known they were going to do a sale at that time. I'll have to keep this in mind for next year.

wOW, that is so pricey Mary! Wonder why it costs so much shipping to Alaska when priority rates are the same for Alaska.

Annette, I decided not to order any at the last moment though I really wanted to add a couple of their beautiful tree peonies. I got so many last year that I don't have any room left. With tree peonies, I have to find them permanent spots because they are harder to move. Maybe I will get some next year or later in the year.

Before I retired, I shipped a lot of electronic equipment out to be repaired, using UPS. Their receipt book had a number of circles drawn apart and separated by a number of miles with my location in the center. They were called zones. That was why shipping rates varied by distance. USPS has flat rate box prices regardless of the distance unless it was overseas. When I gifted my peonies, the flat rate was exactly the same for shipping to Kentucky as it was to Alaska.

Why are the tree peonies grown from seed so much more expensive than grafted? Time required to grow to selling size?

I agree Jerry. I order a lot of stuff from outside. Some from Amazon (not Priority CC) will ship post paid if you buy a certain amount. A lot of vendors ship post paid but not to Alaska. And yet, as you pointed out, the flat rate boxes are the same no matter where shipped. Joys of Alaska
