This is a small but very attractive garden located along the lower southwest side of the University of Alaska in Fairbanks. It is a good place to visit in the summer to view the kinds of flowering plants that can be grown in the Fairbanks area. Also if you are a resident of Fairbanks area, it gives you good ideas...

If you live peonies, this is the place for you. Bro the cold winters and warm summers, peonies flourish here in the summer. All kinds of colors and huge!
