2022 Peony 'Lembrose' Most Expensive Peony Ever $2,500.00

Peony 'Lembrose' for Sale for $2,500.00 at Swenson Gardens

One shocking piece of news that came out of my work on the 2022 Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Catalog Price Comparison List was the price tag on a new cultivar, Peony 'Lembrose', the biggest price tag I have ever seen. The only description on this very expensive peony (aside from the stats: 32" tall, 38" wide, double, mid) are, "Need we say more? The apex of new peony cultivars?", which is not much of a description to me. The Swenson Gardens web page does show several photos of the bloom as is progresses and opens, and it is very pretty.

Honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about this super expensive price tag. Does it mean that peonies are becoming more valuable? Is that good for the peony world? Does it mean that peonies are becoming more inaccessible to the average gardener? How do you feel about these new higher prices for new peony variety introductions? Would you pay $2,500.00 for one peony root? If you have a comment, please leave your thoughts below in the "Post a Comment" box.
