Hi all,

Can anyone suggest some specific tree peony varieties for my area -- 
central Indiana.  I want the traits:

1)  Do well in medium shade -- I want to put it under a walnut tree with 
some other shade-loving plants (hosta, trillium, fern) in a new bed I'm 

2)  Really hardy -- we have hot summers, sometimes very wet, and cold 
winters, also sometimes very wet

3)  They should probably be moderate in stature -- it gets very windy here 
in spring

Also I would like to know a few reliable sources for tree peonies.
