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.
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.
During the months of May and June, we open the gates so that visitors can come and visit the peonies in bloom. Visitors from the Sequim Chamber of Commerce, local residents’ visiting family and friends, people visiting the Olympic Peninsula or the Twilight site of Edward and Bella – our customers, their family and visitors delight us with stories about their own peonies.
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.
Even non-peony lovers go home with a plant or two to bring back with them memories of their visit.
And, surprise of surprise, upon visiting the Butchart Garden in Victoria, BC, they discovered that Peony Farm is only 20 miles from the Port Angeles ferry! Definitely, Peony Farm is becoming a destination venue for people visiting the Olympic Peninsula along with Olympic National Park, Olympic National Forest, Hoh Rain Forest – check out venues at Destination at the Olympic Peninsula.
Do plan your visit next year! on our Annual Peonies on Parade.
The Annual Peonies on Parade hosted by Peony Farm ended June 29, 2014. However, the colorful memory of the peonies in bloom is still fresh in our mind. The remaining peony blossoms we harvested, from which my sister, Christina, wove her magic and created beautiful peony arrangements surrounded us for the week of the 4th of July.
Peony Farm is Awash with Color, peony flowers, and it is a sight to behold.
Until next year, we have these pictures to remind of 2014, where the peonies were exceptionally beautiful.
