  • This is an open field and blooms are weather dependent. While we try to plan the schedule in the way to capture the peak bloom period to have the nicest-looking garden, the inclement weather can still affect the bloom condition.
  • In case of heavy rain/storm the event can be rescheduled or refunded.
  • Please do not break off peony stems. If you need to make a gorgeous bouquet, we will be on site to assist you. We cut the stems in order not to damage them.

Parkland Peonies

Since 2016, Parkland Peonies, located in Alberta, Canada, has been working to provide our customers with quality Peony roots, Martagon Lily bulbs and cut flower stems at a reasonable price. 

We value each customer and are grateful for your loyalty and support and helping you learn how to grow peonies in your own backyard.

Parkland Peonies is one of the leading peony sellers in Canada and we are dedicated to extending and updating our root stock collection every year. So if you are wondering where to buy peonies in Canada, it’s here! We ship our peonies to every province in Canada, as far east as Ontario, Quebec, PEI, and Newfoundland, and as far north as Yukon and NWT. You can be assured that you will receive top quality in our roots and our martagon bulbs.

As of today our assortment contains over 750 Peony varieties and 60+ Martagon Lily varieties. Some of them are older varieties and some are the most recent on the market.

We want to bring the best and most versatile array of Peony colors, sizes and shapes to our customers’ gardens and we’d love you to enjoy our peony selection as much as we do. 

Our mission is to introduce and bring our gorgeous Peony plants to Canadian household gardens, and not only locally, though we love seeing peonies all throughout Alberta and in our neighborhood of Calgary. We believe that Peonies are one of the most gorgeous-looking perennials that can beautify any landscape and considering their longevity they can become a heritage plant that is passed from generation to generation.
