Leendert (Leen for short) is a businessman, the self-proclaimed king of the metaphors and a gracious host. But foremost he’s a family man. His wife and children, twins Jaap and Joanne, are as peony-mad as Leen is and work with him in the field.
Jacob is a ‘walking encyclopedia of peony science’, and a driving force behind the rising popularity of peonies. This tinkerer worked on inventions such as the first fully automated peony bunching line. Jacob and his brother Cees are known for continuous innovation. And for being pretty down to earth about the odd less successful experiment: “We haven’t failed, we just proved what won’t work.”
One of the youngest members of My Peony Society. Rowin was barely nineteen when he used his savings to buy his first plot of land and began cultivating peonies. His incredible talent makes hard work seem effortless. Travels around the world to study (and grow) spectacular peonies.
