January 10th 2023 update:
Pacific Northwest Peony Society Members!
Happy New Year!
We are pleased to announce the return of the Society's Annual Winter Meeting - FEBRUARY 25th, 2023.
It's been a while coming, but with the post pandemic return to more normal times we are anxious to resume this annual social and professional gathering to network, share, learn and discuss all things PEONY.
▪️Please note: Although the expenses for conference venue and food services are projected to be $120 -$130/attendee, the Society is subsidizing all but the $35 conference registration fee. We hope this further induces you to join us! Also, in acknowledgment of the earlier suspension of meetings and activities during the pandemic we will be crediting dues payments already made to the forthcoming year. More details at the meeting. We're always eager to build the membership and we hope this will encourage your own attendance and that of any guests you may bring.
▪️The hotel, "Holiday Inn Portland South" 503 682-2211,
(actually 20 miles south of Portland, at the I-5 Wilsonville Exit 286),
is holding a room block for us. Members staying at the hotel will need to mention the "Pacific Northwest Peony Society" when making their reservations
on or before January 25th.
▪️COME JOIN US, BRING A FRIEND, SEE YOU THERE!

The Founder: Al Rogers
The Pacific Northwest Peony Society was founded in 1996 by peony lover Allan 'Al' Rogers. He wanted to form a group that got together to discuss peonies and one others' love for the beautiful flower, and then the Pacific Northwest Peony Society was born. They started getting local peony growers from around Oregon and Washington, and it has grown from there. We recommend to everyone to pick up a copy of Al's book, "Peonies" By Allan Rogers, it is a great read, and very informational.
(Al Rogers passed away this past year.)
We welcome, all types of people, commercial peony growers, to landscapers, to home gardeners. The yearly membership fee for a two person household is only $10.00. Join us today!!
