The peonies are opening right on schedule this bloom season. The Coral Charm and Coral Sunsets will be at their finest in a couple of days and through next weekend. The recent warm weather is opening the early mid-season peonies, with loads to open this week and next. The late season varieties are still in the little bud stage, ensuring more bloom in late May and early June. 

As varieties bloom, we add them to our cut peony display for your quick comparison of colors, flower forms and fragrance.

What a super Mother's Day weekend at the farm. We were blessed to meet so many of you this week - I think the crowds at our flower tents were record breaking this afternoon. One comment I keep hearing over and over this year is how 'magical' our gardens and farm are. The wisteria is dripping with fragrant blossoms. It long ago outgrew the arbor and graces the tops of conifer trees - captivating everyone's attention. You can find it in our iris gardens, separating the upper level from the lower level. 

We have lots of fresh cut peony flowers and arrangements, along with a variety of potted peonies for transplanting now. You can also order peony roots for fall planting. 

Stop by and take a stroll through our peony fields and iris gardens. We are open daily during peony flower season through at least June 9th. Hours: 10 am - 6 pm.
