A World-Class Garden

The W.E. Upjohn Peony Garden at Nichols Arboretum is one of the world’s premiere collections. The garden holds nearly 800 peonies and over 10,000 flowers at peak bloom.

Looking ahead to the 2024 season...

The Peony Garden re-awakens from its winter slumber from in late May. From then to early June the flowers bloom and reach their peaks at various times, depending on species and weather.
