Wholesale Peonies Roots
Hi all.....As many of you know, we are located directly in the middle of all this historic flooding going on!!!....Our home is dry, and the peonies are planted on high ground..so they are safe, but our storage facility took quite a hit....We were able to evacuate most of our own spring planting roots, and most of the spring orders to a 53' refrigerated reefer...It worked beautifully, but when you are moving100,000 roots in a quick fashion, there is not much organization....!!!....We are now done with spring shipping and on to our own planting...(what we did not get planted last fall because of wet conditions)......We did have Ameri Corp help us clean up the mess in storage.and will have to start replacing tags, labels, and boxes as we need them.....life in the peony business goes on, and the bloom should begin within the month.....Our time is very limited right now when we should be in the field getting more accurate counts, we are still planting....For those of you who are waiting for confirmation on counts for your orders, please bear with us....It is a one day at a time right now.....thank you all for the emails and concerns...we value you all as customers and friends,....and will do our best to service your accounts
Updated varieties are on the site...we do have some I am not showing as they were not on the field record, but I know we have them on other farms.....so what I am saying is that I will probably be adding varieties.....if you are thinking of any particular variety that you do not see.....inquire.....no varieties are on the list that we have 500 or less in the 3 year field....
As a wholesale Peony grower, we have built our reputation by growing quality roots at affordable prices.
Give our lists a look, and if there is anything that peaks your interest....just give me a call or email.....
Feel free to call anytime if there is ever a question, we love sharing what we know about our business, and hopeful it works for you with your growing conditions.....

Thanks for your business.
Operated by owners Vicki and Eric Sjulin, Swedish Touch Peonies is located in the beautiful Loess Hills of Southwest Iowa. We are just off I-29, approximately 50 miles south of the Omaha/Council Bluffs area. If you’re looking for skilled, family owned and run, peony growers, we have exactly what you need.
The type of soil we use in growing our plants is called loess (pronounced luss), a German word meaning crumbly. The soil consists of a gritty, light-weight material composed of tightly packed grains of quartz, feldspar, mica, other minerals. Our unique soil and location give us a major advantage in growing quality plants, as peonies thrive in this type of environment.
Our Loess Hills extend from the southwest to northwest tip of Iowa. Wind formed the bluffs over 25,000 years ago, and the only other place like it in the world is near China’s Yellow River.
We are a third generation of Sjulins, involved with a long history in the nursery business dating back to the early 1900's. As such, we are very knowledgeable with what we grow and we pride ourselves in offering many of the selections our Grandfather grew decades ago; some he even named himself! During the blooming season, we practically live in our fields in order to provide cut flowers for the Omaha and Lincoln markets ( we’ve been doing this for the last 25 years.) This also enables us to recognize growth habits, dig mixes, get counts, and indulge in the tranquility, beauty, and fragrance of our peony fields!
Take a look at the peony varieties currently available in our online catalogue. As our inventory changes, we will try to keep the site updated, however, in the event you request something "sold out" we will contact you with options, and will not substitute without your approval.
When you place an order, you will be dealing directly with Eric or Vicki; so there is a contact person to take full accountability. The two of us do the majority of the work, with help from Vic's parents. We try to return calls, faxes, and e-mails as they come in.
If you have any questions about the Peonies we have for sale, please call me at 712-382-0403
Thank you for visiting!
