Chateau CharMarron Peony Gardens


I think peonies are just about my favorite flower in the whole world and in just a few weeks, mine will be in bloom!!!  My plants are covered in buds and I can’t wait to fill my house with their beauty!!!  Every year I go to Chateau CharMarron Peony Gardens and treat myself to a few new plants.  If you have never been, and you love peonies, it’s a must!  Or if you have gone, this is a reminder that the tree peonies are just about to go into full bloom and the herbaceous shrubs, that’s my favorite, will be in full bloom in two weeks.  The property has hundreds and hundreds of beautiful, fragrant peony plants of every variety.  This farm is really a sight to see.


Chateau CharMarron Peony Farms is in the foothills in East San Jose – kind of a long windy road to get up there but well worth it.  Peonies have an extremely short blooming period, so there is a small window of opportunity to see all the flowers and splurge on a few plants.  The prices for a shrub start around $25 which is great compared to the nurseries.  You can also purchase cut flowers, $2. a stem.

    Wow! I love peonies! I had no idea the farm was there but will definitely check it out. You will have to do a post on your peony secret. I’ve never been able to grow them. Beautiful picture (the first one!!) Really grabbed my attention and made me want to read your post 🙂
