10.12.2010  I am the Master Gardener at Hildene The Historical home of Robert Lincoln son of President Abraham Lincoln. The Lincoln's planted peonies that they ordered from France in 1905. I have been researching the peonies for several years and honestly I can not even think what it would be like without Carsten Burkhardt's Paeonia Project.The latest pictures are bar none the best! Thank you so much. Forever Greatful, Cindy Lewis
