Treat Yourself to a Peony Bouquet

Our big, bold Coral Charm and Coral Sunset peonies are just starting to bloom.  We’re offering 5 huge peonies for $17.99 plus sales tax. Each one opens as big as your hand!  Contact us to reserve yours and schedule a convenient pick up date and time at our farm.    Our peonies are available from late May into June.   Scroll down to see our blush, creamy white, and pretty pink peony options.  All dates are approximate based on previous year’s bloom time. Peonies will last about a week in the vase depending on the conditions. 

Shirley Temple Peony  This perfect peony starts with a blush of baby pink and becomes ivory white after a few days. Mid-sized flowers make it well suited for bouquets with other flowers. Slightly fragrant.  Available the last week of May and the first week of June until sold out.

Brooke’s Peony Beautiful soft, vintage dusty pink.   Easy to blend with other flowers in a bouquet. Single to semi double flowers. 

Red Peony Variety of double flowered fuchsia reds available the first and second week of June .

Dr. F. G. Brethour   White double-flowered peony that blooms in the shape of a rose. The perfectly round buds open up to lush, white flowers sometimes with a slight blush of pink depending on how cold the weather is. This peony has many side buds that continue to open.  Available the third and forth week of June.

Sarah Bernhardt Peony Huge, classic double flowers in fresh pastel pink.  Available the third week of June.

Auten’s Pride Peony   Full double; opens pastel pink with delicate lavender highlights, fading into blush to white.  Light fragrance.  This is our latest blooming peony available the third and fourth week of June. Great for weddings.


Everyday is Earth Day!

Parrot Tulips are unruly and that’s what I love about them. They also look like a beautiful, mini planet earth when they are all closed up with all those colors swirling together!  Just in time for Earth Day we have a limited number of Apricot Parrot bouquets available.  Give us a shout and we can arrange a pickup at our farm.  These special tulips are just $18.99 plus tax.

We started planting our dahlia tubers this week.  We also have tubers available for sale.  You can find them in our Goebel Hill Farm Etsy Shop.

If you are planning an event this summer and looking for fresh cut dahlia’s for DIY bouquets, the same beautiful flowers you see in our Etsy shop can be had fresh right here in Granite Falls for as little as $1 per stem.  Contact us for the details and to reserve your date.

Happy Earth Day!



The Joint is Jumping…at Goebel Hill Farm

It’s been a hopeful, lovely start to spring here in the Pacific Northwest. Nothing makes my heart sing more than seeing the tiny green leaves emerging on all of the deciduous trees turning the view out the window into a Monet painting.  Our early daffodils are beginning to bloom and the beautiful, shiny black pussy willow trees ( Salix gracilistyle “Melanostachya”) we planted over 20 years ago are at their peak right now.

There has been a change in the wildlife action around the place, too.  The birds are trilling and woodpeckers tapping as loud as they can on anything that makes noise and a few Starlings have been having a heated debate as they scope out holes in our old Alder trees.  And don’t get me started on the rabbits.  We caught this silly dance on the trail cam last month:

We expect to have some specialty Narcissus available by April.  Another goal is to offer Big Love and Apricot Parrot Tulips alongside our Rannunculus this year.  Having these bloom at the same time is the plan, but the weather decides if I will be able achieve this goal!  Our Coral Charm peonies begin blooming in May running through June.  If you are local and in need of unique, beautiful fresh flowers give us a ring and follow us here or on Instagram for the latest! 

Happy Spring!
