    You might try the Heartland Peony Society www.peonies.org. Their phone number is 816-455-0614.

    You will find a number of extension publications on Tree Peonies if you search on tree peonies site:*.edu

    Tree peonies may not be available this late in the season. They are normally planted in late September to early October. Local garden centers may still have dormant bare root plants.

    Tree peonies tend to be easier to find in the spring as a potted plantin the nursery. A lot of people are more comfortable planting a plant in leaf than a dormant twig. So don’t give up as they will be available but probably better selection come spring.
