A great season for Peonies at Peony Farm

What a great season we’ve had at Peony Farm.  In addition to plentiful, beautiful peonies and a sunny weather – we enjoyed seeing our old friends, and got to meet their family members and new friends in the garden.  It’s also a pleasure to meet people taking a short trip to Sequim, or vacationing  in the Olympic Peninsula.

I love sharing ideas with visitors about the peony culture.  I so enjoy the oohs and aahs and exclamations about the wonderful atmosphere the garden offers to one and all alike!

This year, our local newspaper The Peninsula Daily News honored us. They featured an article about Peony Farm,  you can read it here:    http://www.peninsuladailynews.com/article/20150608/NEWS/306089992

As a result of this article,  residents from Sequim, and outlying communities came to visit and congratulated us for being selected by Garden Design Magazine for their Spring 2016 issue.

I, for one, am looking forward to Garden Design Spring 2016 issue!

The peonies are done blooming and until next blooming season, we bid our friends “so long”.

If you’ve missed coming down to visit with us,  you can still view the beautiful peonies in color at Peony Farm 2015 Catalog.    This also affords you the ability to place an order before your selection is all sold out.





The peonies are blooming now and what a riot of color and fragrance that is!

Visitors to the farm/gardens are amazed at the beauty they see . The flowers in bloom are indeed gorgeous and a sight to behold.  And for our locals, those who had not visited the farm before were astounded that we have been at this location for over 5 years now and the number of peony varieties planted (over 2,500 peonies).

Blooming days for Peonies

Peony lovers all over the USA, including me, count the days every year when the Peonies are blooming.


From May 15 to June 28, Peony Farm is once again opening its farm to the public for the much awaited blooming of the peonies. During this 2 months window, peonies of different blooming periods (there are 7 of them) will be opening 7-10 days apart. This is why some peony lovers choose different varieties in order to enjoy an extended blooming period.

To ensure that your selection is reserved, place your order early as they move pretty fast. Also, check out the new selections coming this fall at the website Peony Farm.


You can usually see  the tell tale signs of spring  when you see the pink and red eyes breaking ground.  The peonies have survived yet another winter!

Thanksgiving at Peony Farm

Thanksgiving.  We have much to give thanks for

Thanksgiving at Peony FarmOur Lord sees fit to bless us with  good health,   ongoing growth of the business, loyal following – both local and all over the USA, repeat customers,  great vendors,  great crop,  improving efficiencies ,  and improved cash flow.

On the health side,  I’ve had a successful skin cancer surgery, cataract surgery and I feel that I am on target in being “diabetes free” by February 2015.

On the relationship side, we are communicating better and that is a big plus!

This year, I found my way back to God and learning much to show my love and appreciation for all that He has provided for me now and in the past.

Thank you dear Lord for all the blessings.

Heavenly Peonies at Peony Farm


I’ve always felt that a visit to the Peony Farm is a way to de-stress, because of the comments we receive.  They delight in the peace and beauty surrounding the farm, the fragrance wafting in the air from the peony blossoms and the variety of peonies.  They are amazed to discover that there are some many varieties available.
