peonies from cuttings????

Can you reproduce peonies from cuttings? I had someone to offer cuttings in a trade, and I wasn't aware you could get them from cuttings. If it is possible to do this would it be true to color??

If you could do this it would be true to color. However if you are talking about a herbaceous peony it is impossible to propagate the plant by stem cutting.

You can graft the cuttings with buds if from a tree peony to a herbaceous root the same way that fruit trees and roses are grafted to other root stock. The Canadian peony Society did have a video that you could purchase showing how to do it. I have taken the HPS workshop and find it the proceedure very interesting but I will allow someone else to do it for me. (Until I can't resist the urge to borrow a cutting) So far I have asked and been granted permission. Best hint allow the root stock to rest out of the ground well washed and dried for several days, makes the cutting easier.
