2015 Intersectional Peony 'Joanna Marlene' on Ebay

I just couldn't not buy it! Isn't this flower just gorgeous? I know, I know. I just had a bad experience buying peonies - those Fake Itohs on Ebay - 4 (Not) Intersectional Peonies, but this one was just calling my name. Plus after checking my 2015 Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison List it is $15 cheaper than any other seller is offering to sell this peony for this year. Plus I had $22.01 in Ebay Bucks that were just burning a hole in my pocket. So after everything was said and done, I got this intersectional peony shipped to my door for about $47, and it's already on the way!

Also I did check out the seller, 'Garden Breeze Hostas' on Garden Watchdog. They only have 10 ratings, but they're all positive. One of the ratings is even for a Peony 'Bartzella'! Their ratings are all old, I guess because it looks like they no longer sell on their own website. However they do still sell on Ebay, apparently. Both the garden*breeze seller on Ebay and the 'Garden Breeze Hostas' on Garden Watchdog say they are in Mount Tabor, New Jersey. So it looks to be the same seller. Hopefully this time, I'll get what I pay for (especially since this one's more expensive)!


  1. I think that you should be very careful buying itoh and tree peonies via Ebay. I was scammed by one of the Ebay seller from NJ. I bought a few tree peonies from him of named varieties and after 3 years found out that they are all single white varieties. By year 3, it was too late for me to complain and get my money back. I think it is worth it to spend the money to get this plant from a reputable seller.

    1. Kimmie,

      Good to know. Thank you for the information. Could you please share the Ebay ID of the seller who scammed you? The more information we share about bad sellers like these, the safer we can make the internet.

    1. Dan,

      The only update I can give you so far is that the stems of this Peony 'Joanna Marlene' came up, and it does posses intersectional foliage. However I cannot yet positively ID the peony, since it has not yet bloomed. It has been growing and thriving thus far, and I am hoping for a bloom on it this spring. If I get one, I'll be sure to update you on its identity. Also I am planning to create an Ebay sellers review topic to be published soon. So keep an eye out for that...
