ABOUT

Alaska is the only floral-market positioned to supply world-wide demand for Peonies between the months of June and September. Due to Alaska’s northern latitude, cool climate and long summer days, Alaska-grown Peonies are some of the largest, most vibrant product available world-wide.

Alaska Peony Broker is an Alaskan-owned company based in the heart of the Kenai Peninsula. APB understands the unique needs and challenges facing producers working to secure a their business in an industry less than ten-years old.

APB’s mission is to partner with Production Partners to maximize the financial potential and success of Alaska’s peony market; while providing buyers simplified-access to a searchable-network of growers providing quality-volumes of flowers.


APB works with and seeks the council of industry-experts providing its Production Partners with professional advice, research, and support.
