If you want to learn more about the gardens, there will be guided tours available from 3 to 4 pm during the Peony Festival. The guided tour costs $5 per person, and you don’t need a reservation. Be back at the mansion at 4 for a presentation from a floral designer and a horticulturist. They’ll show you how to gorgeously arrange peonies so your bouquets will last longer. You’ll also learn a little bit more about growing your own peonies, and a brief Q&A will follow so you can ask any specific questions you have. The presentation inside the mansion costs $15 per person.

If you are in the market to spruce up your own home garden, there will be a selection of peonies and rare trees on sale. The sale begins at 5:30 pm, and the Peony Festival lasts all day long. Be at Whitehall at 3110 Lexington Road.
