Swenson Gardens


Thank you to the 1500+ peony admirers who came out on June 9th and 10th to view our peonies!  Are we all nuts or what? You gotta love peony admirers…WE LOVE PEONIES! For those of you who attended last year, remember the flooding we had getting into our fields and driveway? Then a few years ago we were wearing winter jackets and rain gear? And then 2017! ‘Where’s Dorthy?’ was the theme yesterday morning with gusts up to 45 mph and topping the afternoon off with 90 degree temps. Yes we peony admirers are nuts but you have to do it! All of you who attended yesterday were amazing! Sure it would be nice to walk through a climate controlled greenhouse, but to see first hand how our peonies held up in the wind means ‘no staking’ in our peony varieties descriptions. You may be wondering how our peonies look after the storm that went through this morning, well the picture below will give you an answer.


2017 Peony Field Days is over. We look forward to seeing you again if you will be picking up your orders on September 15th and 16th, 2017. Otherwise do make it an annual event to come out to our Peony Field Days! We hope you had a great time and enjoyed your visit. Our online store, mail order and phone orders are still open. Make sure to check availability of our peonies online as some peonies will be sold out after we update our inventory. Again, thank you to all who came out to our Peony Field Days to view our peonies!
