Flowers by Willows is an Alberta based peony farm, growing heirloom peonies for the home gardener and floral lover. We started our peony farm in the fall of 2015 and continue to add unique varieties every fall. Currently we have over 2500 peony plants on the farm and over 100 varieties make up that total. In the fall of 2019 we were very lucky to have been given the opportunity to purchase 100 peony roots that had originated from Cyril Clarke. Cyril Clarke is a well known and highly respected peony hybridizer and grower who lived in Northern Alberta dedicating countless years of his life to the research of these beautiful plants. Those original 100 plants were divided and ended up being over 500 root divisions that were planted on our south facing hill. These are the crown jewel in our collection and we hope to open the farm up in the years to come for visitors to view these magnificent peonies in full bloom.
In the spring we offer cut peony blooms for sale and in the fall we offer bare root peony sales. Bare root peony offerings will be posted in late August and currently are just for local central Alberta pick-up. In 2021 we will be offering shipping in Canada, so we look forward to sharing our roots with all Canadian gardeners very soon!
