Minnesota Peony Society Fall Auction

Bachman’s on Lyndale Heritage Room
6010 Lyndale Ave South
Minneapolis, MN

Hours: 1PM to 3PM

Returning again is the fall auction of select bare root peonies and other peony related items. This a fundraiser for MPS, a not for profit plant society for the peony enthusiast. All proceeds are used to fund events and promote the education and social communication of the genus Peony.

The auction is a chance to acquire new and rare as well as well known varieties to add to your garden. MPS is planning an educational seminar before the auction. In the past we have had speakers or hands on demonstrations such as how to dig and divide a peony. More information will follow.
