Our Supporters

The Peony Garden is an iconic legacy of Dr. W. E. Upjohn, founder of the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company in Kalamazoo, Michigan. His generous gift of peonies in 1922 was the founding event in the multi-year project that culminated in the Peony Garden opening to the public in 1927.

Many thanks to the family of W.E. Upjohn who have provided transformative support for the care of the Peony Garden and its collections, and to our generous friends and donors who have supported research, education, and engagement with this historic collection.
