Where do you buy them? I'd like to try a few of each this year.

I'm looking at American Meadows. Any thoughts?

Kinkytoes can recommend:
American Meadows - lily bulbs. Got my RARE, native, fabulous lilium superbum from them and they FINALLY BLOOMED. There are too many tracking scripts on the site now, but their products have been good and they never mixed up my bulbs.

Holland Bulb Farms - They occasionally have unusual peonies. Otherwise, for the common ones, I'd say...

Lowes - CHEAP peony roots, but the divisions are bigger than anything I got online. The only thing is that they carry more common peonies. They also have lilies, dahlias and other bulbs. I've never tried dahlias.

B&D Lilies - They have a big variety of unusual and hard to find lilies. The quality is good. I've bought tons of lilies online, and B&D is another source that has not mixed up any of my bulb orders.

NOTE you may want to plant peonies in Fall. They sulk in Spring in my area.

Thanks, Kinkytoes. I'm zone 7. I'm going to skip the Dahlias this year as they have to be lifted or container planted. Think I'll skip that until next year.

My Itoh Peony, Bartzella, has it's first bloom this year. Probably would have bloomed before, by mistake it got mowed down, twice They are easy to find at stores, but I find they all have the same old same old every year.


I had 2 dahlia's that I put in a few years ago. They both have come back. I won't take an bulbs out of the ground, if it survives, it survives. I do try to get ones right for my zone, 7B


I'm running out of room in my garden, but should I find another Itoh I like, I will find some way to wiggle it in to my garden. Sorta like the 3 hosta's I bought today that I surely don't need, but can somehow find room for them in my "hosta arena."


Thanks for posting those names, I will have to look and see what's there.
