At Rumwood Nurseries, we are passionate about providing you with the best plants and have been doing so for over 50 years with our mail order delivery service for roses. We now have a grand selection of peonies available for mail order delivery. These are the perfect partner to plant with our roses in a mixed border or making a huge statement on their own.

Our peonies are supplied potted throughout the year. The peonies are a 3-5 eye root which will give you a good size plant in the first year. They will flower from June onwards.
