I went to the Sir Harold Hillier garden last weekend to see their new peony border - Bartzella was definitely the plant attracting the most attention from visitors there.

i have a P. rockii that I posted a photo of here in 2015. a few months back i noticed it has fallen across a path I was creating at the top of a slope. It is planted close to the house so my fault of course. I can't move the path; now i have to move a plant ~5' across and high. Supposedly they move easily in  the autumn. Any advice would be welcome. I doubt it will retain much soil, even if i could lift it.

Be bold Brian and lift it, it should be fine. If there is no urgency then autumn is probably counsel of perfection but they will survive lifting at other times, even in leaf if you cut back the top growth a bit. I brought my plant of Lydia Foote with me from Suffolk; it spent over a month in a plastic bag in a potting shed, was divided into three to make two new neighbours happy and the remaining third has flowered beautifully this year;

I got a good harvest of seeds from this P.veitchii, or at least it is grown as such. It is about 50-60cm high plant, has sidebuds, flowers open pale pink but turn almost white during flowering, and it is very fertile so it is not a sterile hybrid like Windflowers. If anyone is interested in these seeds please send me pm.

Anyone have rockii or a double yellow seeds? I have both of the  hanging yellows and would like a nice upright yellow. Can buy, or trade, looking for 10 seeds of each. Thanks.

Peony seeds, especially of P. rockii are too large to 'hide' them in a letter Duff, otherwise I would give you some.
Because of the necessary Small Lot of Seeds permit they would confiscate them at customs. Maybe you can find someone else from US to exchange with.

The rockii peonies pictured below were especially fertile this year, having produced two bags of fresh seed from the plants. I now have 748 grams of seed from the pink form, and almost 140 grams of seed from the white one. Although these two plants grow beside each other, I suspect seed from the pink form will probably produce similar coloured offspring, as it was the first to come into bloom. Seed from the white form could produce intergrades between the two.

If anyone is interested in seed, please send me a PM.
