So there are these flowers called roses … They’re kinda pretty … I mean, some people like them. They smell really good, or at least some of them do. Oh who am I kidding? Roses are awesome! And they’re looking amazing in the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden right now.
But the roses will be around all summer, if you want to spend some QT with another flower that brings out the obsessive nature in our visitors, you better get her right quick! The incredible peonies lining the road in front of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory are as perfect as I’ve ever seen them. So, if they’re your favorite, get here asap and bliss out with your favorite flower.
Other fantastic places where you should consider chilling out in this hot, hot heat include the Native Plant Garden which is looking like the world’s most lush prairie, the Azalea Garden which is gorgeous with share and ephemeral streams, and the Perennial Garden full of shady benches and shrubs full of hummingbirds.
Wild Medicine: Healing Plants Around the World in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory continues to delight visitors with a one-two punch of geeky knowledge and Renaissance beauty. Come visit us in the Bronx and beat the heat with an easy 20-minute Metro-North ride from Grand Central Terminal!
