About Winterberg Peonies
Winterberg Farming is peony growing operation located in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Our farm’s climate has proved to be ideal for successful growing of these equisite flowers. Historically the farm has been a cattle, sheep and raspberry farm however peonies have been grown in the farm garden for generations.
The quality of the flowers we produce and the varieties we supply are our core focus and we will continue to innovate when it comes to producing new varietals.
Our cut peonies are sold both on the local South African market and internationally. The flower season runs from October through to early December. Root cultivars and potted peonies are currently only sold in limited numbers.
We’re passionate about farming and growing peonies. Winterberg Farming has a reputation for delivering on our promises and only supplying flowers that meet our very exacting standards.
Our peony flower season is quick and intense. It normally starts in the first week of November and we have flowers until mid-December.
Our colours range is white, light pink, dark pink and red peonies. You can purchase flowers in bunches of 5 in a small box that holds 80 stems or a large box that holds 200 stems. To transport peonies you need to keep them cold and for this reason they will need to be collected from Lonrho at your nearest airport. Currently we are able to ship to Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Cape Town and Durban. We ask that you collect your flowers on the same day that they are transported ensure freshness and can’t be held liable for any issues relating to late collections.
Each winter we lift and send out peony roots. There is such demand for them that we keep a waiting list throughout the year and then contact you when the roots are ready to send in May – July.
To successfully grow peonies in your garden you need to live in an area with more than 30 days or nights of temperatures below 6 degrees C. Minimum orders are 3 roots and the maximum is 25. For orders more than that you need to make a special arrangement with us.
Orders will be couriered to you with growing instructions.
