Saunder's Peonies

Perhaps no other Peony breeder has inspired others to grow and hybridize peonies than Professor A.P. Saunders. His hybrid creations are avidly sought after for their unique beauty and qualities. These rare and historical varieties often sell out quickly. We have one of the largest offerings of his peonies in the US. They don't make standard 3-5 eye divisions so they are rarely propagated by commercial growers but I love them so offer them to collectors here.
