Peonies and Pop Up Shops

Ah the peony! Mother of flowers in China, revered the world over, the peony has much to recommend it. Its silky petals, its perfumed scent – no wonder it is a perennial garden favorite.

Watch as artist Echo Wu captures the peony’s spirit in her lovely brush paintings – perhaps you will win one in our hourly drawings! Echo will be demonstrating the art of Chinese brush painting in our Cottage Garden, whose collection includes a number of outstanding peony cultivars.

A fine selection of peony plants will be offered for sale in our nearby Pop-Up Shop featuring Atlock Nursery. Atlock Nursery is known for its outstanding and unusual plant material. The staff can advise you about peony care to assure that you will soon be enjoying the peony in your garden. Members of The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum will receive a 10% discount on all peony purchases. A free peony plant will be given to the first five people to purchase a membership in The Friends of The Frelinghuysen Arboretum!
