Gather your art supplies and meet us at the peony nursery for a plein air event like no other!
Don Hollingsworth has graciously invited artists from the AKMA to visit during peak bloom season.
On Thursday, May 25th we will leave the museum at 9am and caravan to the Don Hollingsworth Nursery in Maryville, Missouri. Peonies of all kinds will be in full bloom. Come ready to take reference photos and do art en plein air (in the open air).
Planned arrival at 10am. Pack your own picnic lunch. We plan to stay for the day and head back home around 4pm.
Don’t forget your art supplies, easel and chair, hat and sunscreen, snacks and drinks.
We Missouri peony growers and hybridizers specialize in field production of bush peonies, herbaceous hybrids, Itoh hybrids, heirlooms, new varieties, species, as well as rare and hard to find ones. We grow thousands of different genera, registered cultivars, specific epithets and species.
Our roots go back more than 50 years. With a plot of rented land and hard work, it was there that Don Hollingsworth’s love for plants transformed into a legacy built into decades worth of American hybridizing and growing some of the world’s finest peonies.
