2013 Tree Peony P. Rockii Seeds on Ebay

I've been wanting a P. rockii tree peony for quite some time, but I have yet to acquire one. So I decided to buy some of the P. rockii tree peony seeds that I found for sale on Ebay. They were kind of expensive ($7.50), but not as expensive as the plant itself (which is usually $50+). So I decided to give them a try. Plus the $7.50 price did include the shipping. So I guess it's not too bad. I've purchased some P. rockii and P. rockii hybrid seeds from the APS Peony Seed Sale before, but they have yet to germinate. I'm hoping these will do something since they're advertised as USA grown and fresh. We shall see...


  1. Why didn't you go with the 200 seed one which is only double the price at 15.50?


    I haven't gotten any rockii seeds yet because I really can't see a big enough of a difference with them in comparison to regular Chinese tree peonies.

    Somebody just sent me some Lutea Ludlowii Tibetian tree peony seeds, but I am a bit confused who it was from as the person and address was unfamiliar, but it will be interesting to sprout these guys.

  2. Steve,

    It's because the peony pictures in that auction are pink. I really want the white P. rockii peony with the purple center! :-)
