The Nursery & Display Garden is located at 34 Autumn Hill Drive in Bernardsville, New Jersey within easy access of Flemington.  The display gardens are laid out over an 8-acre property with trails that meander throughout the peony collections. Four major types of peonies are highlighted in the garden: woodland, tree, herbaceous, and intersectional. Over 700 different cultivars planted in the garden, each of which will bloom for a period of 7-10 days over a six week bloom period that typically begins in late April and ends in early June.   When planning your visit it is important to consider what is in bloom at the time you wish to come. The bloom sequence is: woodland/species/suffructosa tree/gansu tree/herbaceous/intersectional. Typically the peak tree peony bloom is at the very beginning of May & the peak herbaceous peony bloom (the big show-stopper) is in late May into Early June. Visit the website for lots of peony info!
