Our Peonies

When we first bought our farmlet in 2011, we spent 3 weeks living out here before renting it until we were ready to move out of town.  In those 3 weeks we were perplexed by some sort of crop growing in two of our paddocks.  When my dad visited I assumed he would know what they were as he is an agricultural consultant, but no he had no idea.  My mum on the other hand couldn’t believe her eyes – as a former florist she said “you lucky things – you have paddocks full of Peonies…”

Sandra Bernhardt

The Sandra Bernhardt is my favourite peony. Huge, double pink blooms are displayed on the bold, erect stems of this clumping perennial. Stunning in floral arrangements.

Shirley Temple

A lovely light pink peony, we only have a few of these. Huge, double white blooms with a hint of rose are displayed on the bold, erect stems of this clumping perennial.

Bowl of Beauty​

We have a huge amount of Bowls, they look lovely bunched together. It has fuchsia pink Japanese form flowers which are particularly showy because of their large yellow stamenoid centers. The blooms have a light fragrance, and are a lovely cut flower.

Baroness Schroeder

This matron is very large, tall, floriferous, and proudly possesses strong stems. Baroness Schroeder produces excellent foliage. Its blooms last a very long time, making this peony great for garden decoration & cut flowers.

Madame Jos Odier

Such a beautiful dark pink peony, ours have very long stems making them beautiful as cut flowers.

Princess Margaret

Dark pink, double, fragrant, late-midseason flowering. This enormous full double flower is a rich rose-pink with strong stems.

Peony Anne Cousins

This is one of only 2 pure white peonies. Next Autumn we will divide and hopefully be able to increase our white varieties.

Dr Alexander Fleming

We have a lot of these and they are the first to flower. Known particularly for its sweet fragrance; has large, bright pink flowers, which fade to a paler pink towards the edges; the large number of side buds extend the blooming season.

Paula Fay

My favourite! I only have 2 of these plants, but I found another down in the orchard which I divided up last year and popped 6-7 divided into new spots in the peony patch. It will take a few years to flower but I’m patient.


I have actually purchased the Coral Peonies as there weren’t any here and they are just stunning. 

Festiva Maxima

A lovely white variety with some specs of dark pink. I only have a few plants of these. 

Katherine Fonteyn

This is on of our early blooms. Lovely light pink similar to Sandra Bernhardt but lighter in colour.

Madame Emile Debutante

The outer petal is a is a mid pink with a lighter pink centre.
