THE SCOTT ARBORETUM OF SWARTHMORE COLLEGE

Tree peonies

Tree peonies have been a part of the Scott Arboretum since its establishment. The collection resides on the gentle slope between Clothier Hall and Sharples Dining Hall, and displays over 130 types. Herbaceous and intersectional peonies are also well represented in the collection, which are organized by country of origin and hybridizer. Yellow magnolias provide light shade and add even more color and fragrance to the spring display. Pictured below: Paeonia 'Kokuryunishiki'; overview of the collection.
