Visiting the garden

The Blooming season takes place in a time frame of 2 months, April and May, and in our garden, it  generally follows this pattern: 

Single flower tree peonies are the first to bloom together with the semi-double flower tree peonies, which flower from early April to mid April. They are then followed by double-flower tree peonies and when they finish around late April, the peonies belonging to the P. rockii species begin to bloom. Flowering of the Rocki peonies ends by mid May and, at the same time, the delavayane peonies flower. Early May also sees the blooming of the herbaceous peonies, that generally gratify our visitors until the end of May.

Peony flowering time coincides with that of the viburnum, prunus, wisteria and climbing rose, making for lots of striking areas to visit in our garden.
