Experts at a University of Alaska
Fairbanks conference say that international demand and the unique northern
growing season could make the showy flower Alaska’s next cash crop.

UAF hosted dozens of growers,
researchers and marketers during the four-day conference last week examining
the promise of peonies. There are 41 peony producers in Alaska, with more
adding to that number each year.

Peonies in Alaska bloom from late
June to September. That’s when the flowers are dormant in the rest of the
world.
