Alaska Peony  Alaska Peonies from the most rural peony farm in the world: @eaglesongalaska ๐Ÿ“†Harvest Jul-Sep ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธShip in USA ๐Ÿ“ง Order: peony@eaglesongalaska.com

A #coralpeony here to get your through your hump day. You can make it!

Would you like your mother to have a subscription to #AlaskaPeonies? Check out the link in our bio! We are offering 3 & 6 week subscriptions of 20 #peonies shipped straight to her door every week. Harvest starts in July, when the rest of the world will be out of peonies. A perfect #MothersDayGift!

Ever wonder about the process a #peonyfarm goes through when harvesting? Lucky our wonderful #Wwoofers last year made a video to explain!

We're glad that even though our #farmhands are working hard they still have fun!! Enjoy this video made by our #packrats!

To answer questions about our process: โ˜žthe leaves from each #peony stem are stripped from about the bottom half โ˜žthe vinegar bath is to prevent mold from growing on the #peonybud, while in refrigeration โ˜žwe can refrigerate the stem for about a month safely (most rarely do, as they sell quickly!) #lovewhatyoudo

Can you smell it? Some lovely #LesliePeck's in the front there. ๐Ÿƒ

The Alaska #peonyseason is July- August, but we recommend getting in your #cutflowers orders now! Alaska is the only supply for #peonies during those summer months, so harvest is usually fully reserved by the time we start cutting and shipping. ๐ŸŒธ
๐Ÿƒ
For a subscription of peonies (a box of 20 stems every week) check out the link in our bio. For individual event orders email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com. (Yes, #diybrides, we will ship to you too!)

These gray and snowy days have us thinking about summer #peonyharvest. July will be here soon enough! Until then, here are some more #FelixSupreme from last year to admire. ๐Ÿƒ
๐Ÿƒ
Remember we are offering #peony subscriptions for the summer. A box of #AlaskaPeonies will arrive on your (or your loved one's) door step every week for 3 or 6 weeks. Harvest starts in July, when all the peonies in the Lower 48 states will already be finished for the year. To find out more check out the link in our bio or email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com!

Some #FelixSupreme #peonies for your Thursday. It's snowing here in Alaska! (Our version of April showers being May #flowers. )

What's the weather like in your part of the world?

Just a reminder our #peonies are:

#AlaskaGrown, #Veteran Grown, #GreenEnergy grown, #SmallFarm, #FamilyFarm, and grown under the #MidnightSun!

We are taking July- August #peony orders now and can ship anywhere in the USA! Email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com for ordering details.
Here are some perfect seashell pink #NickShaylor peonies.

A common wives tale about #peonies is that they need ants to eat the sap off of them or they won't open. However we don't naturally have ants in our region of Alaska and our peonies still bloom. ๐Ÿƒ
๐Ÿƒ
The correlation that is actually happening is that a #peony bud will exude sap just before they bloom to encourage pollination. This can attract all kinds of insects, but most commonly ants. They are not eating the plant, just the sugars.
๐Ÿƒ
We love #LadyBugs in our peony fields...they eat aphids which are drawn to the sweet sap produced during the peony budding stage. Not only do aphids eat into a peony bud, but the honey dew they leave behind will deform a developing plant.

Some more of our #familyfarm's 2018 #peony harvest. We're looking forward to seeing the real thing again, with the Alaska peony starting in July. While we still have snow on our fields, we can see many of your father south have peony plants up and about to bloom!

These #peonies are blush hued #MarieCrousse.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give the world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. ~Georgia O'Keeffe

Why do you suppose it's called a #CrinkledWhite #peony?? ๐Ÿ˜„With thousands of peony varieties out there, they have to get inventive with naming!

We're already taking July- August #cutflower orders, to be shipped across the USA. To find out more email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com.

Oh #CoralCharm, how we love thy photogenic nature!

Embodying @pantone 's #coloroftheyear, Living Coral!

This #peony variety always is fully reserved by the time we reach harvest in July, and we suspect it will be doubly so this year! So get your orders in early.
Email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com for ordering details!

It's been a little while since we looked at anemone style #peonies! Here are some of our unusual #Lauren variety, to demonstrate the contrast of the anemone center with the skirt of larger guard petals. Often this style of #peony is duel color, which you don't see as often in the herbaceous peony varieties. ๐Ÿƒ
๐Ÿƒ
This is just one of the many peony varieties we will be shipping nationwide this summer! To find out more ordering #cutflowers email us at peony@eaglesongalaska.com!
