The Rosefield Peony Gardens is an individual enterprise, originally established at West Point, Nebraska, in 1884, by Mr. J. F. Rosefield.
Moved from West Point to Omaha, Nebraska in 1910 and located on the West Dodge Street road, operating at this location until the close of 1917, when land was sold, together with a part of stock planted for cut-flower production. Choicest varieties were reserved and moved to 72nd & Bedford Ave., Omaha.
Management of business and stock passed from father to son in 1919 and the Rosefield Peony gardens are owned and operated by Reno Rosefield at the present time.
The location at 72nd & Bedford Ave., Omaha was found inadequate to meet the needs of the business in its present capacity, necessitating another move.
The present location of the Gardens is directly west of Des Moines, Iowa, on the West Grand Avenue road or Federal Highway No. 32; being the main highway from Omaha to Chicago through Des Moines. Here we have an ideal forty acre tract of clean, wholesome land upon which we will continue to produce the clean, healthy strong stock as in the past, for many years to come. The new farm is very easy to locate and all persons interested in peonies are welcome to come and enjoy or study them.
