Specimen Garden


Also known affectionately as ‘Annie’s Garden,’ this lovely garden was first designed and planted in 2001.  Located in the far back portion of the grounds, it is truly a hidden treasure that is worth a visit.  It features numerous varieties of bulbs, perennials, herbaceous plants, evergreens and specimen trees along a winding path. 

Springtime welcomes a special Victorian treat as this garden is best known for its collection of over 60 varieties of peonies.  The annual Peony Festival, held each year in early May, celebrates this flower and welcomes the public for informal tours of the garden and other activities.
