Hollingsworth Peonies
Hybridizer & Grower of Fine Peonies

We are Missouri peony growers and hybridizers who specialize in field production of bush peonies, herbaceous hybrids, woody and Itoh hybrids, heirloom and historic cultivars, new varieties, species, as well as rare and hard to find sorts. Here you'll find guidelines on how to plant, how to divide and detail information about how to take care of your peonies. All of our peonies are duly registered, many originating from our own, award winning hybridizing program. We are members of the USDA and State of Missouri phytosanitary and cultivar protection program.


Fall is the time to plant peonies, they should not be planted in the spring. Depending on the varieties you are interested in, now may be the time to order for fall planting. While we still have ample stock for most cultivars we do sell out of some varieties quite early. Particularly last year we had a lot of customers that waited too long and they did not get the peonies they wanted. Adding items to your wish list does not ensure those varieties will be available as the season progresses. We encourage you to order early what you really want and especially do not wait until late summer.

We Dig Peonies! ™

We take pride in what we do and are among a few companies that are neo-nicontinoid and GMO free, our farm is a protected area for pollinators. We follow and exceed USDA approved land stewardship and production methods and work closely with the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. As of this year the Klehm peonies have been fully incorporated into our program. This acquisition increased our collections to nearly 20,000 distinct seedling and varieties of herbaceous and woody peonies. Addionally, we have been scaling up our production to nearly 100 acres in the hope to meet the demand of our customers. All our peonies come directly from our farm to you. We do not resell imports and we do not ship in the spring since peonies do best when planted in the fall.
