2019 Intersectional Peonies at Lowe's 3 for $29.98

Intersectional / Itoh Peonies for Sale at Lowe's

I'm not sure if I've ever seen a deal this good on Itoh / Intersectional Peonies before. If you haven't seen them yet, Lowe's Home Improvement is selling 3 Intersectional Peony roots in a box for $29.98! That's a really good deal considering the cheapest Intersectional Peony that I track on my price list, 2019 Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison List is $25 (plus shipping) for one (and that's the lowest price, the average price is $73)! Each "ITOH PEONIES" box has 3 peonies in it. The boxes all have 2 varieties in each box, with a mix of Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' and one other peony. However I couldn't see how many you got of each. I'm guessing since it didn't tell you how many of each variety, that there are probably 2 'Bartzella's and 1 of the other variety in each box.

'Bartzella' & 'Scarlet Heaven' Peony Set

Intersectional Peony 'Bartzella' is a great peony to own anyway. It is an American Peony Society Gold Medal Winner and and American Peony Society Award of Landscape Merit Winner. It is also a Southern Peony Best Performer, 2012 Peony 'Bartzella' Best Performer - Week 5. From what I could see, it seems they are selling three combinations: Peony 'Bartzella' & Peony 'Cora Louise', Peony 'Bartzella' & Peony 'Canary Brilliants', and Peony 'Bartzella' & Peony 'Scarlet Heaven'. If you don't grow some of these varieties or if you think intersectional peonies have been too expensive for you to grow in the past, then this is an excellent opportunity to try them. Also if you do grow these varieties and you'd like to grow more of them, here's your chance to stock up!

'Bartzella' & 'Canary Brilliants' Peony Set


  1. Wow, I remember when Bartzella was many hundreds of dollars. Here it's $10 a division ? If they actually are divisions that is. They could be small individual plants grown from tissue culture, that had yet to reach blooming size ? Worth taking a risk to see what they are though, for people who've not had the experience growing them.

    1. Bob,

      You are probably right about the tissue culture, unless these came from some where overseas that is just mass producing them. Also I guess it could be possible that it is not even an intersectional peony at all or just some random Itoh that is not good, but let's hope not. I don't think I've seen too much intentional deception in peonies at the big box stores. That mostly seems to come from some select sellers on Ebay...
