Yes, they are in my neck of the woods.... well, i am ~18 miles (closer if you are a crow) from Ann Arbor:)

A few years back they were selling 'Early Scout' and asked to take a photo of my plant. They came out, shot some photos and gifted me a couple of heirloom dahlias.

They usually have some interesting plants for sale.

Oh nooooo!!!!! I was hunting for Philomele for some time and regularly checked this site with no success! So... I cannot miss it! I put Philomele in the basket but there is $30 minimum. Mary if you are going to place an order would you mind to include Philomele for me, please? If not I have to buy 2 peonies D'Oh!

thanks Anya for reminding me about this order. I had them in my basket and I lost connection to the internet. Then got involved in spring garage cleaning and forgot. I have now ordered them including Two Philomele. Hurray!

Karen, you were right. I love the heirloom peonies. I will have to order a new batch of plant signs to show the 1800's peonies. Now to figure out where I will put nine (including those already ordered) new peonies. Groan!! If I dig up my rhubarb bed out front I could plant three peonies there. I still have rhubarb I put up (froze) from 2016 so obviously I am not using it very much. But I don't want to dig up flower beds. I need something in my yard besides peonies. Uhhhhh? Or do I....

I just re-fenced my back yard. The new fence is about 10' farther out than the original fence. the new fence is 700'. So, I have ~7000 sq feet on new garden. Not even 0.2 acres.

if anyone has a space problem, I can acomodate:)

I may have to 'foster' some peonies with you Frank. I have been updating my database and find that, after saying 'no room in the inn' I have 11 more coming this fall. Plus getting through the peony convention at the end of may.
