Late bloomers

Mother Nature is taking her time bringing blooms to the Nichols Arboretum Peony Garden this year. While tree peonies and some herbaceous peonies are open, the cool, rainy spring has slowed down what would usually be a garden in bloom by now. Nonetheless, expectations are that the garden is close to breaking out in its seasonal splendor. Visit the Peony Bloom Status page to see where things stand, or learn more about the Peony Garden.
