Funds were raised in the spring of 2013 to help restore the Peony Walk in Waveny Park. The first phase consisted of simply clearing masses of weeds and extraneous plant material from the peony beds and trimming dead wood and weeding under the row of Japanese maples opposite the peonies. Near the fountain we had the Barberry thorn and dead Miss Kim lilacs removed and replaced them with small boxwood and holly according to a plan drawn up by NCGC’s own Laura Case.
Additional peonies were planted where gaps existed. Now complete, the Peony Walk adds a new area of beauty to the overall splendor of the park.
