**All peony root orders ship out mid-October, the optimal planting time **
Our goal is to set you up for success in your peony adventure.
While it seems like a long time to wait given that our most popular peony varieties sell out between March + June, it is important to note that peony orders will not be ready for pickup or shipment until October. We do not ship peony roots in the spring for reasons best described by an expert in the industry below:
" Spring planted packaged peonies are stressed because they missed their proper rooting time when soil temperatures were becoming cooler. Many spring packaged bare root peonies are cheaper because they are left over roots that did not sell in the fall at the proper planting missing their rooting season, which could not occur while they were in storage. Few people buying these roots and planting them in the spring can achieve a vigorous and beautiful display even after several years of recuperation."
