“End of the Season Visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

My visit was just before they closed the display gardens for the season, but it was disappointing. They had sample flowers in the shop and some were mismarked! It would be horrible to pay the big price to get a peony for your garden only to discover that it wasn't what you thought you would have. There were some area attraction brochures that were nice, but the shop staff was indifferent at best.

“Gorgeous old-fashioned gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

These beautifully-planted gardens overflow with scores of dazzling peonies mixed among other old-fashioned flowers like lilies and iris Definitely worth the short drive north of Salem. . (No admission charge!)

“Such beautiful flowers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Make sure you check their website for their openhouse dates, so you won't arrive and be disappointed. But if you do find yourself in Salem area during the late spring, this has a beautiful display garden that is right around the farmhouse by the parking area.

The fields of peonies are a little walk away, but just so lovely to stroll among all the varieties/colors, just make sure you stop by the shop first to pick up a free catalogue, so if you are lucky enough to live where peonies grow/thrive, you can read and make notes about the varieties you prefer of the ones you are seeing as you are walking through the fields.

This is free to walk around during their open house time.

Note: You will want to wear good walking shoes that you don't mind being on grassy paths with.
