Much like today, historically there were peonies in the most lavish, and the most simple of gardens for both citifolk and farmers. Back in the day they were loved by all, however, there were no cut flowers available for purchase. So J.Franklin Styer, a Quaker and a botanist, decided to change that forever. Firstly he supplied the casinos in Atlantic City, and thus he was able to open up the market in NYC, selling to both wholesalers on 28th street, and florists on Madison Ave. In the 1920’s, and through the depression, he believed that selling fresh cut peonies was a viable option. Like his father who had the original vision to create a mushroom market in Kennett Square, our neighboring town, he was RIGHT!!!!
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.
