Every spring we welcome the public to enjoy our collection of Japanese and American tree peonies in full bloom during the Tree Peony Festival of Flowers.  

Linwood Gardens, a private garden, is located in Linwood, New York, 35 miles southwest of Rochester in the farmlands of the Genesee Valley. The garden landscape was designed in the early 1900s, with an Arts and Crafts style summerhouse, walled gardens with pools and fountains, ornamental trees, and an open view of the valley below. 

Our mission is to preserve the gardens and the tree peony collection for future generations to enjoy.
