2020 Adelman Offers Peony 'Greenland' for $75.00!

Adelman Peony Gardens Offers Peony 'Greenland' for $75.00!

I was excited to see this Peony 'Greenland' offered at Adelman Peony Gardens this year. I know I have seen this one before, but I haven't seen it offered for sale (at least not since I've been doing my Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Price Lists). So Peony 'Greenland' finally made it onto my 2020 Southern Peony Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Price List this year at $75, which I think is a steal. This peony was hybridized by Roy Pehrson, and Peony 'Roy Pehrson's Best Yellow' does phenomenally in my garden. So I'm really excited to see how this Peony 'Greenland' might perform. It gets the "Green" part of its name because the petals are supposed to be a bit greenish colored when first starting to open. So I am really excited to see that too, since I don't have any other "green" peonies in my garden! If you're looking for something unique to add to your garden this year, this peony might just be it!

2020 Swenson Gardens Offers 30 Hot 100 Herbaceous Peonies!

Swenson Gardens Offers 30 Hot 100 Herbaceous Peonies!

I'm not sure if I can afford any of them, but Swenson Gardens is offering 30 Hot 100 Herbaceous Peony Varieties this year! Check out our Southern Peony Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Price List to see all of 30 their varieties offered (along with their prices)! The photo above is just a sampling of their offering. Check out the Swenson Gardens web site to see the photos for all of their offerings. These hot herbaceous peonies range in price from $50 to $1000. Yes, I said $1000! I'm not sure I've ever seen a single peony root offered for $1000.00 before, but now I have!

Swenson Gardens Offers Peony 'Red Lacquer' for $1000.00!

The single peony root that is being offered for $1000 is not a new introduction either. Apparently, it must be a rare Saunders hybrid, Peony 'Red Lacquer'. I had not heard of this variety before, but it is registered with the APS. However they do not yet have a photo of it in their registry. So I guess it must be rare. I like to collect Saunders' peonies myself. (I have a separate garden bed dedicated to Saunders peonies.) But I don't like to collect them that much ($1000 per root). I'm sure there are people out there that do and will pay that much, though. So if that someone might be you, I would advise quick action to reserve one of them, as I'm sure they'll be sold out soon!

2020 Song Sparrow Offers Peony 'Golden Angel' for $36 (from $125)

Song Sparrow Offers 'Golden Angel' for $36 (from $125)

I really can't believe this one! I'm thinking this really must be a price mistake. I would go ahead and order one right away just in case. I don't know if you've seen the 2020 Southern Peony Herbaceous Hot 100 Price List yet or not, but... Song Sparrow dropped the price of Peony 'Golden Angel' from $125 last year to $36 this year. I'm not sure if they are just getting rid of this variety or what, but this is an awesome price for this peony! I don't grow this one yet, but I have been wanting it for a long, long time. THE best thing about this peony is its Foliage! Check out the photos of how it goes from a bright orange to super yellow, to neon yellow green! I have already ordered one myself from Song Sparrow and can't wait to see it in action!! I hope you can snag one too!

2020 Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Catalog Price Comparison List

I've been doing my Intersectional Peony Catalog Price Comparison Lists for 8 years now. This will be the 4th year that I list some of the pricey herbaceous peonies that people might be interested in. There are several up and coming hot herbaceous peonies that tend to be around or above the $100 price range. Some of these peonies can be hard to find and acquire because their stock is so limited (and some are sold out already). So this list will give you a heads up of where you can find them and who has them priced for what.

You can also check out last year's 2019 Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Catalog Price Comparison List, if you want to know the exact prices for these peonies last year. Even if you don't want to spend that much on one peony (yet!), at least you can drool! Enjoy!

(Also if you'd like your company to be listed here, please join the American Peony Society as a Commercial Member, since this is where I obtain my peony grower information.)

Herbaceous Hot 100 Peony Price List
Peony 'Dreamtime'

I am missing a few prices from Hidden Springs Flower Farm this year since I didn't have a chance to collect it right away. If anyone ordered any of the sold out varieties, please email me or leave a comment to let me know what the price(s) were, and I will update the list.

2020 Solaris Farms Offers 20 Intersectional Peony Varieties for $30.00!

Southern Peony Intersectional Peony Garden

Remember back in 2014 Swenson Gardens 7 Intersectional Peonies for $35!? That was unheard of back then, well I think Solaris Farms just took the cake. This year in the 2020 Solaris Farms catalog they are offering 20, (yes 20!), different intersectional peony varieties for $30 each. Intersectional peonies are now finally becoming affordable to all peony growers. That's 20 different cultivars to choose from in an impressive array of colors - Yellows, Pinks, Blush, Coral Pinks, Reds, and Lavender.

Check out our Southern Peony 2020 Intersectional Peony Price List to see all of the intersectional peony varieties they are offering and how the prices stack up, but let me tell you. Solaris Farms is really blowing away the competition this year on intersectional peony price points, and I am thrilled! If you're ready to fill out your intersectional peony bed (or start a new one), head on over to Solaris Farms to fill it up! :-)
