As we look over the peony fields, our final days of Peony Field Days on June 12 & 13, 2020, should be spectacular with color. Yes the early, early to mid and mid bloom varieties are done or almost done, but the intersectionals and mid to late and late garden varieties are prime viewing. Oh and the weather forecast? Absolutely divine! Load up your vehicles and head to 10958 70th ST SW, Howard Lake, MN for a destination of pure peony bliss. We are open from 9a to 5P. As always, we are NOT open on Sunday, June 14, 2020. Looking forward to seeing you at Swenson Gardens Peony Field Days!

After an amazing Peony Field Days on June 5th and 6th, 2020, we are updating our inventory in real time as we take count of additional quantities for sale. Check back often to see if some of the varieties you wanted are again available for sale. Over the two glorious days of Peony Field Days, over 1500 people strolled through our production fields. What a sight to behold as young and old were able to view our peonies. More information will be forthcoming for bloom times in a couple of days. Some of the late varieties started to open today. With the 98 degrees F yesterday, that blast of heat really opened up additional colors in the fields. Our last two days of Peony Field Days will be held on Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th, 2020. We are not open after that for public viewing. All ordering will be through our online store at SwensonGardens.com.
Swenson Gardens Peony Field Days for 2020 are ready for you to come and visit! We are open from 9a to 5P on Friday, June 5th and Saturday, June 6th, 2020. We are not open on Sunday, June 7th. With the two days of 90 degrees earlier this week, the early to mid and mid blooms are starting and/or at prime. Most of the intersectional/Itoh hybrid peonies have started their primary blooms. The very early and early peonies are done blooming. If you go back to my previous post on ‘Frosty Peonies’, yup, the two nights of a hard frost did reduce our buds and even nipped entire buds on plants that did not bloom. The foliage on the majority of our plants look great and on a small percentage of plants, not so good because of the frosts. Fields are very dry so no boots needed for these days. If you haven’t had a chance to read my previous post, please do especially for those who have never been here before. Looking forward to seeing you at Swenson Gardens Peony Field Days!
