|More than 600 types of bearded iris form the backbone of the RBG's substantial iris collection|
|If you love irises, this is a chance to get up-close and personal. Here's Iris 'Banish Misfortune.' Great name.|
|Excellent plant labels and interpretive signs make the Laking Garden educational as well as inspiring.|
|The Laking Garden is also home to other collections, including peonies, clematis and hostas.|
|Framed by formal elements, it will be a picturesque way to begin our Niagara excursion.|
June is the month for perennials at RBG and this is when the Laking Garden is at its best. Take a tour of the spectacular Iris and peony collections which showcase rare and unusual cultivars from the 20th and 21st centuries. In particular the iris collection is one of the most unique collections of its type in North America. Travel through time and look at breeding trends through the decades, marvel at a complete collection of Dykes Medal winning iris and take a look at the latest trends in Canadian Iris breeding. This experience is an unrivalled and intimate opportunity to experience these collections for plant connoisseurs up close. We hope to have the pleasure of your company in the Laking Garden on June 8th.Thanks, Nick! We're looking forward to our visit.
