Gorgeous Peonies (herbaceous cut flowers) were first planted in the gardens at Wairepo in 1991. Today the large, vibrant and luscious flowers that we grow have become one of the most popular and sought after flowers grown in New Zealand.
Worldwide demand for Peonies has grown so high that we have extended our Peonies Gardens several times. The gardens now cover 2 full acres at Wairepo. The harvest season for these beautiful cut flowers runs from October to November and nearly all our flowers are exported to the United States.
For the last 7 years, Matthew (our son) has taken over the day to day management of the Peonies, while we remain "hands on" when required.
