We are pleased to present this collection of superb lily, daylily, and peony varieties. If you have never visited our garden, we hope you will find the time this summer to do so. We feel that we have provided you with a sampling of what might greet you when you step out of your car. However, we could not hope to recreate the sensory experiences of visiting our display garden, in this virtual setting. During a visit to our garden, the scent and the rainbow of rich colours floods one's senses in such a way that makes it impossible to reproduce.

The spell of Sainte-Marie among the Hurons lies in the very land upon which it stands. Located along the shores of Georgian Bay - Samuel de Champlain's "mer douce" - and surrounded by wooded hillsides, this was the ancestral homeland of the Huron Wendat nation, a branch of the Iroquoian family. The Wendat were a matrilineal society of good traders and skillful farmers who called their land Wendake - the land apart.
