16 & 17 May and 30 & 31 May 2020

Open veld Graefswinning

A chance to experience the different growing habits, colours, flowers and scents. 

All peony and flower lovers welcome! Feel free to wander around our flower fields and enjoy the beauty peonies have to offer. We grow as many as 300 varieties of herbaceous, Itoh and tree peonies in our fields, located within walking distance from the main farm buildings and also accessible for sturdy buggies! In case it rains, robust footwear is recommended, our beautiful loamy soil tends to stick once wet.

Peony plants 

The perfect time to shop or make your wish list. In our small nursery we offer a selection of peonies in 7L | 1.8 gallon pots. If your dream peony is still growing in our fields, no worries. The varieties listed in our catalog are available as bare root plants in the autumn. We can ship your order or you may chose to collect on site. Orders can be placed at the farm or through our online shop

Peony Bouquets

We grow an extensive range of peonies as cut flowers. Beautiful, old-fashioned beauties and daring newcomers. These normally go to the flower auction, but during our peony weekend they are exceptionally available at the farm. What could be better in spring than a bouquet of peonies fresh from the field!

New introduction

The introduction of a new peony is always a celebration. Peony "Lumière" will be baptized the 17th of May around 2p.m. If the weather permits, the baptism will take place in the field, this is Lumière’s favourite place!

The godfather is Luc Noël, well-known from the gardening program “Jardins & Loisirs” . The godmother’s role was enthusiastically accepted by Leena Liljestrand, the inspiring chairwoman of the Swedish Peony Association - Svenska Pionsällskapet. The Finnish Peonies Association - Suomen Pionistit - was also founded under her wing a few years ago.

The softly scented flowers of peony "Lumière" are double and with a uniform bright pink tone. The rounded petals take on a silvery lining as they mature. This peony flowers early, which is rare for this combination of colour and form. 

Where

Our address is: Graefswinning - Diestersteenweg 222 - 3850 Nieuwerkerken in Belgium.
