Growing peonies in Alaska is a bit different than the rest of the world. Throughout the growing season, our peonies experience moderate temperatures and almost round-the-clock sunlight, creating Alaska's signature large blooms and highly saturated colors. Alaska peonies are available at a time when the US market has historically experienced an absence of peonies, during the popular celebration months of July, August and September.
Our member-farms prioritize quality by allowing their peony plants to mature to an average of three to five years before the first commercial stem is ever harvested. Each peony stem is hand harvested and immediately chilled before being graded and carefully packaged for shipping in our farm-based packing facility. We have partnered with FedEx to secure reduced shipping rates and to make sure that our peonies can be delivered right to your door within 24 hours of leaving our farm. Ordering directly from a farmers cooperative cuts out the middleman, which means your flowers go through fewer hands and arrive in peak condition, within days of being cut out of our fields.
You can order online, or call Martha at 907-231-9487 to guarantee a display of our premium Alaska Grown peonies at your event this year.
