Peony Garden, University of Michigan Arboretum

Photos are courtesy of my friend Diane. Her garden club visited the W.E. Upjohn Peony Garden at Nichols Arboretum, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is one of the world’s premiere collections. The garden holds nearly 800 peonies and over 10,000 flowers at peak bloom.

June is the time to visit the Peony Garden at U. of M. Arboretum in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The flowers are amazing.

I hope you enjoyed a little visit to the Peony Garden. Wishing you blue skies and lovely flowers.

I was raised in Tennessee but have lived in Florida for many years. Love my small home in the Tampa Bay area and its developing garden. My decorating style is eclectic - some vintage, some cottage, all with a modern flair. Pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Spent many years in social services but am happily retired.

  1. Absolutely gorgeous! ♥ We visited Ann Arbor a few years ago and took a tour of this university complex. They have some fascinating museums too.

  2. Thanks for sharing the lovely blooms. I’ve never grown Peonies, maybe I should try. I just planted flower seeds this week. It’s late for summer blooms, but late better than never. – Margy

    1. Plant peonies in the fall: in late September and October in most of the U.S., and even later in the fall in Zones 7 and 8. Peonies should be settled into place about six weeks before the ground freezes.

    1. I can understand as they are all so beautiful. I visited your blog and tried to leave a message but comments wouldn’t open.

  3. Carol – all those varieties!!! I like the deep pink with the “frilly” center. Gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing this beauty with everyone at Mosaic Monday!

  4. Carol … this must have been a bloomy Day. Wonderful! We have peonies too in our garden and of course in the Vase on the table. Next week – maybe, if I don’t forget – you will see a capture.

    Have a good week. Happy MosaicMonday

  5. These are beautiful photos – thank you for sharing them 🙂

    I have a beautiful pale pink peony in my garden but sadly all the flowerheads were damaged in a storm, they seem very sensitive to bad weather.


    1. I can’t grow peonies here in semi-tropical Florida. I have to be satisfied with photos.

  6. That particular flower has the biggest blooms! I think in Anne of Green Gables there is mention of this beautiful flower. Loved the photos! Enjoy your afternoon!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
