I just received two Burma Midnight peony roots from this fine company. They are the biggest roots I have ever seen. A bit of root with one eye was broken off of one of them, but even with that each peony had nine eyes.
Just sensational. I am thrilled. I will be back.

Correction - one of the roots had 14 eyes, and the other one 9.On January 1st, 2013, DonnaMack added the following:
Please note - they are not closing!On September 7th, 2014, DonnaMack changed the rating from positive to neutral and added the following:
Unfortunately, one of the two peonies I ordered turned out to be pink, rather than the red one I ordered. It was replaced, but neither one of the originals (now in the ground 2 years), nor the replacement (in one year) bloomed. Peonies I ordered from other companies bloomed.

Don't quite know what to say. The peonies Bannister sent all bloomed. All three. And they are fabulous plants. But none of them are Burma Ruby. Based on the bloom time, color and shape, they are Edulis Superba. The same error three times. Just like White Flower Farm, they send great plants but the wrong ones.
