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).
The gardens will be open to the public until June 28. 2015 from 11am to 4pm. Do come and visit!
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.
Peony Farm will be posting photos of peonies in bloom at:

Peony Passion was the driving force into the formation of Peony Farm.
Now celebrating our 5th Year, we are even more so enthusiastic about growing peonies. Our customers and the response we receive both online and onsite are very rewarding. Seeing the peonies grow vigorously and visitors and customers alike enjoying the beautiful peonies is very satisfying.
We serve customers passionate about peonies, locally and all over the US.
We’ve become a destination point in the Pacific Northwest. Visitors from all over the world, local friends and garden clubs come to see the peonies during our Annual Peonies on Parade event during the months of May and June.
I just posted on my facebook page Coral Charm Peony photo. It is so gorgeous. And just in case you don’t do facebook, I had to do a blog to make sure you see this outstanding photo of the coral peony growing at the farm. Didn’t want you to miss out!
Coral Charm peony, on of the coral peonies blooming at the Peony Farm, is outstanding. Not only in the gorgeous blossoms, but also in stem strength and the length of time it stays in the field. This is true of Pink Hawaiian Coral as well. You can choose either one and they are equally outstanding.
Here are some photos for your enjoyment.
Coral Peonies at Peony Farm
Any of these coral peonies will make a great selection for the home garden and flowers for the home.
So sad to see the Peony Farm after all the peony blossoms had been deadheaded. All those gorgeous, beautiful flowers gone.
However, my husband was quick to remind me, that we still have all the peony shrubbery dotting the landscape. And, fortunately, I planted the entrance beds with peony companion plants such as Nasturtiums, Roses, Lilies, Hydrangeas, Eremurus, Hebes, Japanese Maple, Irises, Boxwood and other trees.
These are now providing the color for the farm. Check out the video created by my sister, Christina. Click on “The Peonies are gone” above.
By the way, we are still taking orders for bare root peonies of these lovely scented peonies for shipment this Fall 2014. You can find a great selection at www.shopilovepeonies.com
