Peony News

We have some great peonies at the farm, ready to take home and transplant this spring. The weather is just becoming good 'gardening weather' here in the Willamette Valley after a wet early spring. It's nice to see we are into a drying trend now. 

We have a number of blush, pink, red, white, yellow and bi-colored peonies (some in containers; some available to order for fall).

Some of the spectacular red peonies available in containers include:

Chief Black Hawk (Itoh) Itoh peony Chief Black Hawk

Christmas Velvet  Christmas Velvet peony

Karl Rosenfield  

Little Red Gem (fern leaf) fern leaf peony Little Red Gem


Many Happy Returns red peony Many Happy Returns


And, the beautifully unique peonies:

Stop by and see what we have that will look great in your garden. Easy planting instructions provided.

While we open our farm for the season today, the iris gardens and peony field will be waiting another week to start dazzling us. With lots of sunshine predicted in the coming week, the bloom should be popping by next weekend. This week, I estimate that less than 5% are in bloom - and, that may be a stretch.  

We are running a few days behind a 'normal' bloom season this year. Last year we were nearly 3 weeks early. Usually our peak bloom is mid-late May; and, I expect that this season. Of course, weather rules and I will keep you posted on the bloom progress every few days. 

We do have the best selection of potted peonies early in the season; and they look great this year.
