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. The Arb’s “Peony Ambassadors” offer rolling, informational tours, or, you can wend your way through the garden alone. Enter the Arb at the Washington Height’s entrance.
