Peony's Envy

North Jersey



Peony's Envy is a flower nursery and display garden in Bernardsville, New Jersey within easy access of New York City and Philadelphia. For a wedding ceremony or reception surrounded by blooming flowers, Peony's Envy offers one of the most extensive collections of colorful peonies in the Northeast. Peony's Envy hosts a limited number of private events in the heart of the garden each year during the peony bloom. In timing your event with the bloom cycle, note that typically the peak of the tree peony bloom occurs at the beginning of May, with the herbaceous bloom peaking from the end of May into early June. The gardens are only open May 1st through June 15th for the bloom and again in the fall for bare-root peony sales. The display gardens are laid out over an 8-acre property with trails that meander throughout the peony collections. Four major types of peonies are highlighted in the garden: woodland, tree, herbaceous, and intersectional. If you're looking for a truly special, exclusive, and magnificent setting for your ceremony, this is it!
