When to Visit
Peony's Envy Nursery & Display Gardens are open from April 29 - June 11 from 11-5pm daily for the bloom.
For those looking to pick up peony plants at the garden we recommend you come early in the season.
When planning your visit it is important to consider what is in bloom at the time you wish to come. The bloom sequence is: woodland/species/suffruticosa tree/gansu tree/herbaceous /intersectional. Typically the peak tree peony bloom is at the very beginning of May (around Mother's Day) & the peak herbaceous peony bloom, the big show-stopper, is in late May into Early June (around Memorial Day).
Due to variations in weather we recommend you sign up for our Email Updates and like our Facebook Page to keep track of the bloom. Visit often, walk the paths, and watch the blooms unfold.
