Tischler Peonies

Robert Tischler of Faribault, Minnesota introduced some of the finest peonies developed in the Mid-west. A small family operation similar to Hidden Springs Flower Farm he sold his introductions through the mail and locally with the attraction of an annual cut flower show where you could order roots for the fall. We continue this tradition at Hidden Springs Flower Farm with our annual cut flower show every June.

Some of his later introductions like Paul Friesen and Ben Erickson are nearly unknown in the peony growing world, while others like the Gold Medal winner Myra MacRae has enjoyed a wider distribution. Discover some of his wonderful creations like his namesake Bob and the one he named for his wife Addie and those named for many other family members, relatives, hunting pals and yes even his hunting dogs!

Hidden Springs Flower Farm received their stock directly from Bob Tischler when he retired from growing peonies along with a number of his advanced seedlings one which became named Romantic Lace, a very fragrant new variety gaining popularity around the world.
