This is a small but lovely botanic garden. It has an amazing peony collection, so a mid-June visit would be amazing. There are areas of old trees, underplanted with large swathes of different colours, or sometimes tiers - eg: hosta in front of solomon seal in front of a flowering shrub. It has one large area of beds with different kinds of plants, showcasing the collection. There is also rose collection and a covered walkway. There are also some sculptural plantings, eg: a large butterfly filled with growing medium and many holes, so that when planted will be butterfly covered with growth. The front of the garden has a pleasant water and rock feature and bird feeders. Today there were goldfinches, chipping sparrows, song sparrows, chickadees, cardinals, downy woodpeckers and a ruby throated hummingbird.
