Peony time

The Nichols Arboretum peony garden is about to undergo its annual transformation into a wave of white, pink and red as it bursts into nearly 10,000 blooms. The arboretum is home to the largest collection of heirloom herbaceous peonies in North America. New this spring are more than 70 varieties of vintage — pre-1950 — herbaceous peonies, which join the nearly 300 historic varieties from the 19th and early 20th century already growing in the main beds. Read more about the new peonies and follow the progress of this year's blooms on the garden's website. (Photo by Michele Yanga)
