Commercial Peony Vendors
Peonies can be purchased from many sources. Experience has shown that the best results are obtained by buying from a grower or peony specialist. The roots you get from these people are generally larger, fresher, and true to name, though mistakes do happen. A reputable source will not hesitate to correct any inadvertent errors they may have made.
The list below is made up of members of the Canadian Peony Society; many are Canadian growers from across the country, USA or international. Most of these growers will ship bare roots in the fall, some may sell potted plants, and others do both. You can access their catalogues by clicking on the site and see what they offer.
Please be aware that ordering roots from outside Canada is governed by law, and a phytosanitary certificate must be purchased so the vendor can ship across international borders. You may also require import licence and inspections. Check before you order. You are responsible for these additional costs to import.
Although all these vendors are commercial members of the Canadian Peony Society, CPS does not endorse nor imply any endorsement of ANY vendor. The list is provided solely as a reference for use in your search for that special peony. Enjoy.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT PEONIES
Adventitious Peony Buds
Some cultivated herbaceous peonies have the ability to form adventitious buds on roots well away from any crown tissue. Adventitious buds are those that develop where you would not normally expect to find them, the common example being roots growing from stem cuttings. This means that if you are dividing a peony cultivar known to have adventitious buds, you don’t need root pieces with buds on them to generate new plants. Save the other root pieces and plant them too.
We’re grateful to Nate Bremmer and Carol Adelman for sharing their list of cultivars* forming adventitious buds.

Peony Seed Exchange
CPS 2023 Seed List
The Seed Exchange is a fund-raising project which helps to support the operations of the Society. It provides access to peony seeds from hundreds of varieties of peony, including species, lactifloras, hybrids, Itohs and tree peonies. Seed packets are all priced the same but the number of seeds in a packet depends on the number of seeds available and also the size of the seeds. Seeds can also be ordered free of charge to organizations and institutions for educational or research purposes. Donated seed comes from Society members across Canada, the U.S. and by special arrangement from Whistling Gardens, Wilsonville, ON. Most of the seed is open pollinated. Seed can be ordered by e-mail or mail. Instructions and pricing are provided on the downloadable seed list. Payment may be completed by sending an e-transfer to the CPS via email@example.com Watch for the 2023 list to be circulated in April.
