I found a few photos from our APS convention tour of Sisson's Peony Garden and would like to share! I know there are other pics out there so PLEASE add to this thread! I'm hoping to locate others that I took but at least it's started!

Standing beside it to show the size of these plants! They're in raised garden beds, probably 4-6" tall.

Nice pics, Liz! And very beautiful peonies. Pretty daughter too. Did your family enjoy the tours as much as you?? Do you know how far apart the peonies are planted? THose bushes look massive.

There were no gaps between plants, Karen, but each was pretty large. I'd estimate that they were around 4' apart and there were no companion plants at all in this garden that I saw, peonies only. I don't think Alayna enjoyed it very much! My MIL and SIL didn't make it to Sisson's, they were worn out from the earlier stops, but enjoyed the convention overall.

The dark red at the entrance is really pretty, wish I could ID it but there are so many it could be, littlebin. The searchs out there aren't very helpful, either.
