This summer marks the twentieth year since we planted our first peonies and started our research at the Garden! Now there are over 133 growers statewide, and the peony industry is alive and well.
I summarized the peony industry in 2019 for the Chronica Horticulturae, a quarterly publication released by the International Society for Horticultural Science. It was just translated into Finnish and published in a horticulture magazine there. You never know how far the Alaska peony story will travel!
