Alaska Peony Cooperative's Story
In 2001, research into peonies as a specialty cut flower in Alaska began and interest quickly spread throughout the state. Several adventurous individuals and families ventured out to explore becoming commercial flower farmers in this unique climate. Now there are over 40 commercial peony farms spread out across Alaska, working together to bring you exquisite flowers.
Which brings us to The Alaska Peony Cooperative! This cooperative was established in 2015 as a way to bring together farmers and represent them as a unified voice in the specialty cut flower market.
“Our principles of responsibility, stewardship, and cooperation allow us to achieve more collectively than as individual farms. It is our pleasure to present premium Alaskan-Grown Peonies on behalf of our farmers, and we get to take great pride in helping them succeed at growing the very best just for you.”
When you purchase peonies through Alaska Peony Cooperative, you will be making a direct impact on the success of Alaska family farms.
All About Peonies
From ancient times when they were used for medicinal purposes to when explorer Marco Polo first saw them and described them as “roses as big as cabbages,” the beauty of peonies have made an impression on many throughout the years. Here are just a few facts about this gorgeous and classic flower:
- The peony is the traditional floral symbol of China and the state flower of Indiana.
- They come in every color except blue!
- Peonies are regarded as an omen of good fortune and happy marriage (so make sure to add them to your wedding designs. 😉)
- They can grow to be 3 feet tall - depending on the variety.
- When properly cared for, the peony can live to be 100 years old.
Alaska Peony Cooperative created a lovely PDF guide, “Passionate for Peonies” that describes 24 different varieties of peonies! You can view it here.
