Rain or shine we're here with Mothers Day peony bouquets. Waking up to a morning drizzle is refreshing today - after the heat of yesterday.
Thank you to all the wonderful visitors we are meeting this season. We appreciate seeing many of you returning with friends to show them our secluded iris gardens and peony farm. While we are just a half mile off the highway, first time visitors are amazed at the winding pathways, large conifers, tree peonies and over 1,000 bearded iris varieties they find in our nearly 3 acre iris gardens. The iris are in peak bloom this week and their sweet fragrance is wafting through the gardens and beyond.
You can walk from the iris gardens directly into the peony fields where over 100 varieties of peonies are in full bloom. You can see the differing colors and styles of peonies and compare fragrances - enjoy your very own little peony festival! The later peony varieties will be opening over the coming days/weeks. They are blooming early this season.
Stop by to see the flowers or pick up a plant to transplant now. You can also select and order peonies for fall planting.
Hours are 10 am – 6 pm, daily through June 15, 2016. Potted peonies, cut flowers and bouquets are for sale at the farm.
