Presented in partnership with the Mid-Atlantic Peony Society

From big and blousy to delicate and dazzling, explore and appreciate the variety peonies add to spring! Bring the whole family to be inspired by the unique floral show. Children of all ages can create their own arrangement from 3 to 6 pm, with the option to submit it for judging in our Youth Peony Arranging Contest!

Enter your Own Peonies into the Show!

Do you grow your own peonies and want to show them off? Enter your peonies into Peony Palooza at the Scott Arboretum!  There are multiple categories open to the public: cut peonies and floral arranging. Each category has a competitive (judged) and non-competitive (not judged) option. We also have a peony photo contest and a peony youth contest. Click Exhibitors Guide below to learn more about entering your peonies into the show.
