Amazing Tree Peonies At Rockefeller State Park Preserve

I love growing peonies and I especially love growing tree peonies.  The plants in my collection are many years old and when I moved from Turkey Hill to my farm in Bedford, I also had every single tree peony relocated, as well.  The tree peony season is a short one, lasting just seven to ten days.  That period is made even shorter if rainfall spoils their glorious blooms.  This year, gardeners are well aware that our earlier hot weather really advanced blooming times and tree peonies were in full bloom at the end of April.  I had the good fortune to see an exquisite display at the Rockefeller State Park Preserve in Pleasantville, New York.  If at all possible, I urge you to see this magnificent garden next spring.
