What’s Beautiful Now: Herbaceous Peonies Steal the Show

Posted in What's Beautiful Now on May 20th, 2016 by Lansing Moore – Be the first to comment

Paeonia-'Salmon-Dream'Herbaceous peonies are in full bloom right now! The Matelich Anniversary Peony Collection, one of several new collections inaugurated this year in honor of NYBG’s 125th Anniversary, is bearing massive flowers that are wonderfully fragrant and colorful. The new peony collection is a must-see and is conveniently located just across from the Perennial Garden.

Beautiful throughout the year, the Perennial Garden is especially colorful this month as the perennials fully stretch out for the season. There is always something eye-catching blooming in this garden, with more on deck when they finish. The Native Plant Garden has many blooming perennials of its own, with Sarracenia species in the wetland, and native rhododendrons and azaleas coming into flower as well, all amid sweeps of a variety of lovely ferns.

The Rock Garden is awash in color, and the display can change daily and even hourly on a sunny day. Take a stroll through this secluded, historic collection, and enjoy the peaceful babble of the restored cascade. Visitors this weekend enjoy a unique glimpse into NYBG’s ongoing plant science and conservation endeavors during our Science Open House.
