My Herbaceous Peonies in Bloom

My herbaceous peony garden is blooming with brilliant pinks and whites!

Every year, I’m always amazed by the dazzling display of these beautiful flowers - it’s one of the most anticipated sights on my Bedford, New York farm. Friends and family love the peonies as much as I do and rush to see them in all their splendor every June. When I first planted this garden, I knew I wanted many, many peonies in one large area. I chose a location across from my Winter House, where there's lots of room and full sun - a spot where I could also see the beautiful floral show from my window. All the peonies in this garden came from Roy Klehm, the owner of Klehm’s Song Sparrow Nursery in Avalon, Wisconsin - and I love every single one.
