I read that this varity will survive in the shade. Has anyone had any experience with it and if so what is a good source to buy from. Plant delight Nursery has one in their catalog, but it is $50.00. Too much.

How much and what kind of shade are you talking about?

RE: woodland peony

If you are talking P. obovata, Song Sparrow have it for less.
It does bloom in part shade, I'd say 3-4 hours of uninterrupted sun.
Another part-shade lover you may want to check on is P. woodwardii.

Here is a link that might be useful: P. obovata

RE: woodland peony

Another shade tolerant, woodland peony would be Paeonia japonica. I am not sure that the others mentioned are actually woodland peonies.
