I was in Home Depot the other day and I saw a big sign that said, "50% off all bulbs". So I bought this. OMG, it's gone so beyond obsession of peonies to an addiction that I can't stop. I mean, I did afterall plant 7 herbaceous peony roots already in my yard since last year. Did I really need to buy more peony plants? (Hehehehe.) But seriously, can one really pass up $5.00 for 4 bareroots? Nope. Sorry. It's too hard to pass up. I just hope these roots will grow, since they have been sitting in these packages since the beginning of the year, when I bought a similar package. If they don't, at least I only spent $5.
