2018 Well-Priced Peonies for Sale at Hardware Store - Lowe's

Herbaceous Peonies Offered For Sale at Lowe's

It's not exactly the best season to plant them, but if you need herbaceous peonies and you need them right now, then now might be a good time to stop into your local Lowe's Home Improvement store to grab some of these well-priced peonies. What especially caught my eye wasn't just the price, but also the selection. Yes, they have some of the well known and widely distributed standard varieties - Peony 'Dr. Alexander Fleming', Peony 'Felix Crousse', and Peony 'Sorbet', but they also have a coral peony for sale - Peony 'Coral Sunset'. This is the first time I've seen a coral peony offered as a bare root bagged and carded peony in a big box store. If you don't yet have a coral peony, this might be your opportunity to snag one for a great price!

Peony 'Coral Sunset' for $6.98 per Root!


  1. Some of my favorite peonies have come from the bagged roots purchased at a big box store! There are some negatives, though--the roots are actually pretty small for a peony, probably won't bloom for a minimum of 2 years, more likely 3 or 4. They don't really look small if you don't have peony experience but just compare the bagged ones to a root from one of the big growers, there's really no comparison. And they aren't always true to name, either. A very inexpensive way to start out as long as the purchaser knows that it'll be a while before they get blooms.

    1. Liz,

      Yes you are correct. It will probably take a bit longer to get a bloom from the bagged varieties. However if you live in the South, the bagged varieties are probably a safer bet since they are likely a hardier, easier to grow and quicker to multiply variety that is offered in the bags (which may or may not be the case for more specialty varieties offered from a grower). Sometimes the same old varieties are also the "tried and true" varieties. Actually I am set to get 2 blooms on 1 out of the 3 $1.69 'Sarah Bernhardt' peonies I bought at Aldi's 2 years ago.

      That's pretty good!
