Roy Klehm Peony Collection
At the base of the Crabapple Collection in the west central area of the Arboretum is the Roy Klehm Peony Collection. Plants in this collection were donated by nurseryman and plant breeder, Roy Klehm of Song Sparrow Nursery. The collection was started in 2007 with plants added yearly totaling more than 30 different peony cultivars.
The peonies include new and improved varieties of herbaceous peonies (garden peonies), tree and intersectional (cross between herbaceous and tree peonies). The varieties hold up well in rainy weather and are much more mildew resistance.
The flowers of the old fashioned varieties with weak stems would bend to the ground so these new varieties are much improved. The collection blooms the end of May. The bright, colorful, large flowers and dark green foliage make The Roy Klehm Peony Collection worth a visit.
