Iris and Peony Gardens
The Iris Garden located in the western portion of the upland garden area was replanted in the fall of 2012 with several new varieties of plants that should provide quite a show of color in mid- to late-April.
The Peony Garden is located adjacent to the Iris Garden and is home to more than 40 varieties of this early summer bloomer. The large colorful flowers will last from 1 to 6 weeks depending on the variety and conditions. There are a couple varieties growing here that were hybridized by Marie Schedel.
