Adelman Peony Gardens (Salem, Oregon)

We literally stumbled across Adelman Peony Gardens. We were leaving Schreiner's Iris when we saw the sign for Adelman. It was only one mile from the interstate so of course we had to go. We made a wish list for the fall! :)

  4. I would take any of them (all of them?) I struggle with peonies to have 3 blooms. I bet you will be stopping in there again?

  7. Hi Phillip. You sure picked a gorgeous day to visit these two places. I love all that color. I wanted to answer your question on Clematis 'Multi-Blue'. For me, it has not been very vigorous. Have you considered 'Polish Spirit'? For me, it has been by far the most vigorous of all my clematis. Good luck with your selection. Cheers.

    1. I have read that "Polish Spirit" is a really good one for this area. Thank you Grace!

  8. Gorgeous! I have one peony and it didn't bloom this year. I think our crazy weather may be the culprit.

  9. Antique roses and now peonies! With all the tempting nurseries in your area, your garden is going to be a show-stopper! I planted a couple of Shirley Temple peonies this year, my first.
