Spring morning at the Peony Garden (cropped version)
DP141-2016 Posted Saturday, May 21
Looking east from near the beginning of the tree peony bed.
The backlit tree in the distance is a huge old yellowwod, one of my favorite trees in the entire arboretum. The shrub near the center is the tree peony 'Snow Kissed Peach'. Just to its right is a flowering dogwood. The peony shrub with the white blooms currently has no label. All I know is that it is some kind of woody or tree peony.
