Welcome to North Pole™ Peonies!
We sell peony cut flowers from the great state of Alaska. Due to our wonderful long, sunny summer days, we are able to grow premium quality peonies at a time when other places in the world are unable to produce them. We have peony blooms in July and early August. All our summer peonies are cut, chilled, and packed for shipment on-site.
We are proud to announce that, along with the other growers in the area, we have formed a co-op, Arctic Alaska Peonies, to handle the marketing and sales of all of our peonies. Their webpage is http://www.arcticalaskapeonies.com All of our sales, except for Farmers Market, go through the co-op.
This year we expect to have production from a number of varieties and to have several different colors. We have almost 15,000 peony roots in the ground and are also adding new plants this year, We’re very exited to get started. We put in 3000 roots last spring and are putting in another 1000 this Spring, but it takes about 5 years to get new plantings up to production.
In addition to growing our own peonies, North Pole Peonies acts as a pack house for other peony growers in the area. Because of that, we will have larger quantities of peonies available this year. We are now members of Arctic Alaska Peonies Co-op, a group of packhouses and farms who have joined together in Interior Alaska to ensure that we deliver the highest quality peonies to our customers.
This is what things look like in December; however, in June we have a whole new view of budding peonies. Please check back for updates to see how the peonies are growing this year.
