Seattle Chinese Garden Second Annual Seattle-Luoyang Peony Festival May 3-4

The new peony garden at the Seattle Chinese Garden will make its debut on May 3-4 with more than 400 tree peonies of more than two dozen varieties — all from Luoyang, China’s peony capital. It is the largest public peony garden on the West Coast and perhaps in the nation. The festival is family friendly with entertainment for all ages.
