Nichols Arboretum Peony Garden Close, but Not Quite Yet

Monday, May 27, 7:30 am---

The peony garden is getting ready but the buds are on hold, with a few blooming at the back of the garden. Cooler weekend weather to blame, likely. Azaleas and rhododendrons on the Julie Norris Post Collection on Laurel Ridge Trail are worth a trip today, for sure.

Near the back of the garden away from Washington Hts.


The yellow ones smell like gardenias, we swear.

  1. The yellow azaleas smell more like lilies; practically a doppelganger. Myrcene, (E)-β-ocimene, linalool, methyl benzoate, and ethyl benzoate and/or 1,8-cineole are likely culprits.
