Paeony Tuber Prices vary because..

Paeony varieties bulk up at different rates. Some varieties bulk up quicker than others..

Larger flowering and complex  varieties may take longer to bulk up into large plants.

This is reflected in both the availability and the price. Tubers from these plants may be limited in supply  which makes them more expensive and also they may take longer to establish in your garden.

Fast bulking up produces readily available, lower priced tubers. and when it comes to Paeony, a cheaper price is not an indication of a lesser quality or any less beautiful flower.
