Country Garden Bloom Calendar
If the bloom season is ‘normal’ (Dana says the last normal year was the year before he was born) we expect the early Peonies and dwarf Bearded Iris to start their blooming near the end of the first week in May
About another week later, the Tree Peonies should be blooming very nicely.
By the first full weekend of June (that will be about June 1st) and the week prior and past that weekend, the Tall Bearded Iris and the start of the Midseason Peonies should be in full bloom. Our Clematis will also show their blooms. During this same week the Siberian and Versicolor Iris should be starting to put forth their blooms.
The Late Season Peonies will bloom towards mid-June along with the Japanese Iris, Spuria Iris and Louisiona Iris.
As you can see, we get about six weeks of bloom time from the various iris and peonies.
July is the time for Daylily blooms for us. The Hosta will have their beautiful leaves out all during the summer and will put their blooms up late July through early August. If you look around the gardens you will also notice Lupine, Columbine, Fox Glove, Lilacs and Astilbe growing and blooming. Some of these are available for display only and therefore not for sale.
If you have a question regarding the bloom status of our gardens and you want to visit us personally, you are welcome to call us. You will find the current bloom status given on our answering machine.
