We are Missouri peony growers and hybridizers who specialize in field production of bush peonies, herbaceous hybrids, Itoh hybrids, heirlooms, new varieties, species, as well as rare and hard to find sorts. We grow 1,000’s of different registered cultivars, specific epithets and species.
Our roots go back more than 50 years. With a plot of rented land and hard work, it was there that Don Hollingsworth’s love for plants transformed into a legacy built into decades worth of American hybridizing and growing some of the world’s finest peonies.
Until the 1990’s, Don owned and operated his business by selling plants at this Missouri residence, which later transpired into a growing online and print catalog mail order business. Throughout the years, the catalog featured many of the Missouri grower’s specialty peony varieties, which he introduced into production and registered with the International Cultivar Registration Authority.
