Here you’ll find our VERY rarest bulbs along with late finds and others we simply couldn’t squeeze into our print catalog.

Those marked “Web-Only & Rarest” are sometimes in such short supply that they sell out within days — and some years we can’t offer them at all — so if you see one you like, we recommend you order it now!

CHESTINE GOWDY, 1913        Rarest & Web-Only
This richly fragrant, “tri-colored” peony is decidedly different – and lovely. Its soft pink outer petals frame a flurry of creamy white inner petals that open to reveal a central tuft of pink flecked with crimson. It’s free-flowering, too, with strong stems for garden and bouquets. 28-32”, mid-season, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), 3-5 eyes, from Iowa. Chart and care.

PE-06 1/$22 SOLD OUT
MADAME DUCEL, 1880        Rarest & Web-Only
One of our all-time favorite peonies, baby-pink ‘Madame Ducel’ is a couple of inches shorter than most peonies. What really sets it apart, though, is its exquisitely composed flowers, each looking like a scoop of strawberry ice cream set on a tiny pink plate. Grown exclusively for us from stock we rescued from Iowa’s Sherman Nursery which closed in 2012 after 128 years in business. 3-5 eye roots, 28-30”, mid-season, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Iowa. Chart and care. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
PE-02 1/$21 SOLD OUT
PHILOMELE, 1861        Rarest & Web-Only
One of the most fragrant peonies of all, 154-year-old ‘Philomele’ opens its broad pink guard petals to reveal a frothy heart of amber which gradually matures to pink, often with a tuft of broader petals emerging from the center. The transformation is fascinating – and the fragrance is heavenly! By Calot, free-blooming, strong stems, 30-32”, early-mid season, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), 3-5 eyes, from Iowa. Chart and care.

POLAR STAR, 1932        Web-Only & It’s Back!
Unbowed by wind or rain and as graceful as a wildflower, this rarely offered Japanese peony was bred by the great Hans Sass of Nebraska. Its lacy petals surround an exuberantly sunny center that charms both people and bees. 3-5 eye roots, 32-36”, mid-season, zones 3a-7b(8bWC), from Iowa. Chart and care. We offer a rotating selection of peonies. If you’d like to be notified when it’s back in stock, sign up for an email alert.
