“To me, there is nothing more magical or more beautiful than a garden full of Paeonies in full flower."

Peonies at Wairepo House

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. 

Our promise to you

We have spared no expense in creating a peaceful sanctuary and retreat for you.

We are confident you will not find a more comfortable, private or opulent accommodation anywhere in Nelson and we look forward to welcoming you at Wairepo House soon.
