Aldeman Peony Garden

Our third stop on Memorial Day, and just a few miles from the first two, was Aldeman Peony Garden.
 This is a newly landscaped display garden, with room for more peonies, but first I had to get past the field of red clover next door. This is farm country. 



 Here too wonderful companion plantings accompany the featured peonies. 







































There are huge growing fields here too, where they raise their world famous peonies for sale. We didn't take the walk out to the fields, having had more than enough eye candy for this stop.

  1. What a beautiful garden. You got some great shots of the peonies. I keep thinking I should plant Lupines again, but the last time I did, they were aphid magnets, not a nice look.

  4. I wish I could make a garden like this in my backyard, but the ground is much too hard. I don't have the funds to buy expensive equipment.

  7. Peonies are always very showy. You certainly caught that in your photos. I like this garden where they have a a wide grass space between flowers.
