Explore Pure Peonies Flower Farm in the PNW! Immerse yourself in a blooming paradise and discover vibrant peonies.
Flower Farms in the Pacific Northwest
One of my favorite flower farms in the PNW is Pure Peonies. I was lucky enough to go there in 2018 and recently visited again. The owners, Jim and Renel were so incredibly warm and gracious and allowed me and a few of my friends to walk the property and enjoy the blooming peonies.

Pure Peonies is located in Everson, Washington, which is very close to the Canadian border and is in the northwestern part of Washington state.
Renel is very knowledgeable about growing peonies and has also created a special fertilizer specific to peonies. I will link it for you here below! It works wonders on your peony plants.
Peony flowers are easy to grow if you live in the right climate. They typically start blooming in mid to late spring, depending on where you live. In the Pacific Northwest, peonies start blooming in late May and into June. Bloom time also depends on the variety of peony. Some varieties bloom earlier than others which can also affect the length of the growing season.
Peonies are a perennial flower and are quite hardy. They go dormant under the ground in the fall and come back bigger every season. They are hardy to Zone 3 and grow as far south as zones 7 & 8. They need full sun and well-drained soil. They relish the cold of winter because they need chilling for bud formation.
Many nurseries offer early, midseason, and late blooming varieties, making it possible for you to stretch out the peony season over many weeks and enjoy those lovely blooms for as long as possible!

More about Pure Peonies Flower Farm
Jim and Renel purchased the farm a little over 10 years ago. They had both retired from business careers and were looking for their next adventure!
At the time it was not a flower farm, but they had a vision! Jim and Renel love peonies and knew they would grow fabulously in this region. Renel has SO much knowledge about all the best practices for growing big, healthy, beautiful peonies.
So they put that knowledge into action and started seeing gorgeous blooms the first season. Over the years, Pure Peonies has always used organic farming methods, and focuses on sustainability.
At this time, Jim and Renel are trying to phase into retirement and the farm and farmhouse is actually on the market (as of June 2023). Renel and Jim’s granddaughter Sarah and her friend Anna, are managing the farm during this years peony season. (reach out to them via their website or Instagram for details on purchasing the farm)
When I visited the farm for the second time last week, I was able to meet Sarah and Anna, as well as meet another friend Sarah Wagner (who is also a blogger Dreaming of Homemaking). It was so much fun meeting them and getting to see the farm again while in full bloom.
