Peonies 21.06-05.07.23

Avaldatud: 10.06.23

From June 21 to July 5, it is possible to get to know the exciting world of peonies and enjoy the midsummer flowering in the Tallinn Botanic Garden. Nearly 300 species, varieties and hybrids of peonies are exhibited.

During two weeks, visitors are invited to take part in excursions and curator classes, attend workshops, listen to a concert or walk independently among the fragrant flower beds. The most beautiful peony variety of the Tallinn Botanic Garden will be chosen with the help of visitors.

In the curator’s class on June 28 and during the consultation day on July 1, Anne Jaakson teaches simple tricks to pay attention to at home so that the peonies would grow well.

All workshops, curator classes, excursions and the July 1 concert are included in the entrance ticket, except for Jaan Tätte’s concert on Thursday, June 29.

The tradition of growing peonies as a medicinal and beauty plant goes back several millennia in China, where these flowers symbolize royalty, wealth and beauty. The peony as an heirloom plant in Estonia was losing popularity at the beginning of this century, but now it has regained its glory, and varieties and hybrids with fascinating shapes and colours can be found in every garden.

Tallinn Botanic Garden is open every day from 10:00 to 19:00, including June 23 and 24. Due to the construction works in the parking area, it is recommended to use public transport or a taxi to get to the botanic garden.
