2018 Ebay Peony Seller Reviews

Okay, so this article is about 3 years behind schedule, and while I have been procrastinating on posting it (due to wanting more information), I've finally decided that partial information is better than no information. I guess I will just update it later or create a new updated listing in the future as more information presents itself in my garden. I already see a need to reorganize the information by seller instead of by peony variety, but I will save that for a future article.


Mislabeled Intersectional Peony
(Sold to Me as Peony 'Lollipop')

In hopes that you may learn something from Ebay sellers I've purchased from over the years, I decided to create this reference for which sellers send the actual peony stated and which sellers do not - especially since an initial investment in a peony root can take years to show its true colors. Also if you have some direct experience with these same Ebay sellers or different sellers, please leave any concrete information you may have in the comment section below so that we may all benefit from our combined peony purchasing experiences.

  1. I purchased Lorelei and Lois's Choice most likely from the same seller but under a different name also based in Brooklyn, NY. I compared the tuber roots of Lorelei when I received them and they did somewhat looks similar though the roots appearance can varied depending on the different climate and growing conditions. Could korina77-2008 be the same person as Anna Snitkovskaia - Brooklyn, NY?
    I purchased on eBay knowing the possibility of not being true to names but the roots look healthy though.

    1. Hello,

      Yes, I'm afraid that there may be a seller intent on duping people that has created multiple Ebay accounts with foreign sounding seller names. Did you check the name on the return address of the box your received? I hope your roots are correct, but I have a sneaking suspicion they may not be. Let us know how it turns out!
