SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
11:30 am: Demonstration “How to Divide Peony Roots”
This demonstration will share good advice on how to dig and clean roots prior to dividing them. There will be details on the best methods to divide roots from lactifloras to hybrids and intersectional. Different tools and methods of tackling the toughest roots and easy divisions will be displayed.
12:30 pm: MPS Business Meeting
This year is an election year for MPS. A new slate of officers will be elected during the business meeting.
1:00 pm: Root Auction Fund Raiser
There will be a wide variety of color and flower form and a number of very hard-to-find collectible peonies. From lactifloras to hybrids to intersectional/Itoh’s and tree peonies, we’ll have something for everyone! Donations come from growers and members alike. Digging plants this fall? Contact the Root Auction chair or use the contact page.
Around mid September we will add an auction preview list.
Free and open to the public!
The goal of MPS is to acquire healthy named varieties to promote the interest in peonies by acquainting buyers with growers from around the country. We strive to bring an unique sampling of peonies to demonstrate the availability of varieties while bringing together fellow peony enthusiasts. The bidding process is exciting and fun.
