Does anyone still order from them? I think the bag of 3 itohs at Lowe's was their roots. Also, I ordered a Callies Memory and Mutabilis Plena from their website for $25. Here are the roots:

Callie's Memory looked great.

Mutabilis Plena was broken into 3 pieces and 2 of the 3 had rotten spots. They are sending a replacement root.

Bourgondien was a broker supplying Lowe's and Walmart in our area. Common sense should say do not expect to purchase prime peonies packed 3 in a bag for $10-$15. I have purchased iris sold like that and had some really nice specimens. Mostly noids but nice. Same with peonies. Their peonies are strictly grab bag varieties, mostly noids. For a common gardener such as myself, names were never important. I only kept names for those purchased from major nurseries.
