Flowers of
Distinction


Pinerise Peonies are grown on a secluded farm established in 1888 by the Hansen family. A host of microclimates, rich soil, bountiful rains, and invigorating winds help nurture a superb, cut flower over an extended season — a long-stemmed, strongly coloured peony

By MARG HANSEN

Paeonia lactiflora - the herbaceous peony - is one of the delights of
the plant kingdom, and makes a spectacular display as a cut flower.

This year we are offering 17 varieties of herbaceous peony roots for sale. Orders will be sent as soon as they are dug from early April onwards.

We recommend that you have the site for your peony plant prepared in advance so that the roots are not out of the ground for too long. Peonies need winter cold, rich soil, good drainage and sunshine like a rose really).

Detailed growing instructions will be included with your order. Peonies are not hard to grow as long as your climate has a cold winter.

You can enrich the soil, alter drainage, irrigate and choose degrees of sunlight for a plant but you canĂ­t alter the climate.

We have very few frosts here and the peonies thrive so we don't think they need extreme cold. The important factor seems to be a dormant period. If you have any doubts ask for our fact sheet on growing peonies in Los Angeles.

Here is our listing of currently available peony rootstock - healthy
with three or more eyes on each plant.

We dig the roots in the Autumn, so the latest we can accept orders is the end of May.
