Peonies in September? Yes! A resourceful daughter-of-the-groom found Alaska-grown peonies available in September for her Dad's wife-to-be.
Peonies had a special significance for the bride so this thoughtful daughter wouldn't give up without sourcing them. She turned to the Kennicott Peony Hotline who in turn connected her with Chilly Root Peony Farm, a specialty grower in Homer, AK, who over-nighted the blooms just in time for that special day.
With the Alaskan growing season peaking much later than the rest of North America, the climate is a perfect place to produce these much sought-after flowers.
For this special bouquet, we paired red peonies with white cymbidium and dendrobium orchids, green hydrangeas and hanging amaranthus to create a lush, romantic look.
