Any suggestion on where to get Etched Salmon?

Any suggestion on where to get Etched Salmon without having to pay more than $20. I saw couple online but they are all in the $30-$40 per root price range.

I bought peonies from a Mr. Harold Entsminger this year. I saw him listed Etched Salmon for $20 + shipping. If you send him email about it, he may still have some left. His email is: herr_old@yahoo.com

I received his plants on Monday. THey are nice size. Karen

Thanks Kousa. Did you get the plant or bareroot? $20 for the plant is pretty decent.

When I say plants, I mean bareroot with eyes, sorry about that. The only potted peony plant I ever bought was a Bartzella plant from Costco. I bought 4 herbaceous peonies and one tree peony from him. THe herbaceous roots are nice size but the tree peony, I am not so sure about it. The tree peony does not seem to have a lot of roots attached to it so I am a bit worried. Hopefully it will make it.

Hi Karen, so the herbaceous roots you got from him were nice sized? I did get his list but didn't order this year, thought I'd wait to see what your experience with your roots was and since I'd ordered so many already.....I'm sorry you weren't as impressed with the tree peony. He's a hybridizer himself, right? I assume he also grafts his own tree peonies for sale? Hopefully yours will flourish in the spring.

Hi Liz and Joopster. Here is a photo of one of the peonies that Mr. Entsminger sent. This is Salmon Dream, look at the size of the root. Though you can't see them well,there area about 5 eyes on this root. I'd say that I am happy with the purchase. Now, if my tree peony makes it come this spring, I will be a very happy camper. Karen

lol. Wow Kousa, that's huge. Does he ship internationally? :) I can't find Etched Salmon here for less than $50. Another vendor sells it for $75. $20 is amazing. Heck, $30 is amazing :P

I didn't get a reply from Mr. Harold Entsminger. Oh well...

I think that he may be too busy digging and shipping peonies at this time and does not have time to respond to emails. He maybe a one person operation. Karen
