The Nichols Arboretum Peony Garden is the crown jewel of springtime in Ann Arbor. The garden commenced in 1922, cultivating a vast display for greenthumb bio enthusiasts and romantics alike. It includes 28 beds of peonies, some better scented than others, so beware which flower you stick your nose into.
