We take pride in our origins. American peony breeders since the late 1800’s have been amongst the best in the world, and Dr. J. Franklin Styer (botanist) was one of them. His primary interest was to breed varieties that were most suited to being cut as a fresh cut flower with long vase life. Having grown these beauties, he then had to create a market for them (In the early1900’s they were relatively unknown to the flower markets of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington). Franklin Styer decided to change that forever. Firstly. he supplied the casinos in Atlantic City, and though this exposure he was able to access the market in NYC, selling to both wholesalers on 28th street, and florists on Madison Ave. From there markets opened up everywhere. In the 1920’s, and through the depression, he believed that selling fresh cut peonies was a viable option, bringing so much beauty and pleasure to thousands every year.
Today, the Styer’s collection has been greatly expanded. We maintain the passion, enthusiasm, and downright obsession for peonies. Styer’s Peonies grows on a combination of 120 acres in 3 climatic zones, which provide excellent conditions for the approx. 200 varieties in our portfolio.
