Peonies Celebrated with First West Coast APS Convention

It’s a big deal! For the first time ever, the American Peony Society (APS) will meet on the west coast. There will be competition flower exhibitions for commercial growers and home gardeners, and if you’re a member of the APS (there’s a $25 fee to join), there will be tours and workshops. The public gets free admission to the flower displays and vendors on Saturday afternoon, May 28, from 1 to 5 p.m., and Sunday, May 29, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Wilsonville Holiday Inn. Peonies will be shipped in from all across the country; it’s a real treat to see what the different growers consider their best. For more information, visit http://www.americanpeonysociety.org/.

Many of our wonderful peony nurseries are open to the public. Visit Adelman Peony Gardens in Salem, Brooks Gardens in Brooks, and Brother’s Herbs & Peonies in Wilsonville.
