Stock And Guarantee

A&D Nursery is responsible for sending generous divisions of healthy plants that are very much alive and true to name, but cannot be responsible for any plants lost due to weather or neglect of any kind. Sometimes first year peony blooms don’t look like the picture, in which case, you need a little patience. Color and flower shape improve once the plant has had a chance to grow new roots the first year. But when a red shows up that should have been white, don’t hesitate to call. We regret any inconvenience, but occasionally, as hard as we try to avoid them, mix-ups do occur.

Our roots come from pots as well as from field-grown plants. Roots from pots will look different than field-grown roots, but both achieve the desired result—beautiful, quality peonies plants and blossoms. By the way, the size of the root doesn’t determine the size of the plant. Some peonies produce big roots, some smaller roots. Bigger doesn’t mean better or that you’ll get blooms the first year. Three to five eyes, the industry standard for a quality root, doesn’t mean the plant will have 3 to 5 stems. What matters is receiving a healthy root with adequate eyes and root mass.

Privacy Policy and Returns:  A & D Nursery never shares or sells any customer information. For a full refund, returns may be made within 48 hours after roots are received if for any reason you are unhappy with them. Retain original packing material and make sure plants have adequate moisture for their trip back.
