I ordered several tree peonies (rockii, suffruticosa, ostii) and seed. Communication was a little spotty - sometimes replies were same-day, sometimes a week later - and it took a full month after payment to ship. Transit itself was rather quick (a week?). The plants look good - two are only one root and one stem, which is a bit smaller than expected, but most had multiple eyes and one or two were large enough to divide before planting.
I am concerned about what the other commenters say about plants not being true to type (plants were ordered this fall, and won't bloom for a couple months, if not a year for the smaller plants), but overall it has been a positive experience.
On the web as both Peaoniarockkii.com and china- plants.com.
I ordered 5 Shima Nishiki Dao Jin tree peonies from this company. Four of the plants have bloomed solid red flowers and one of the plants has bloomed pure lavender. I understand that this cultivar can bloom red flowers depending on the cultural conditions, but none of mine has thus far bloomed as indicated in the literature provided by this company. The lavender flowered plant they sent me is not what I ordered. I have sent numerous e-mails with attached photos of the plants in bloom to this company and have not received any replies. I used the on site message service and was able to reach someone by the name of Lee. They told me to send an e-mail and that they would reply asap. These e-mails have also went unanswered. This company also does business online as China-Plants.com. Same street address, etc.
I have ordered Japanese, Chinese, Rockii, and Herbaceous Peonies from Zhongchuan Nursery several times and have been very happy with the plants I received. They offer replacements for any that are mislabeled. The tubers are large and healthy, and everything is packaged professionally. The sales expert I have dealt with is Irene. Her communication skills are excellent, and she is very helpful with the ordering process. I highly recommend this nursery.
