The Open Days Directory describes Lyman’s garden as follows:
A collection of peonies, both wild species and the early hybrids of Professor A.P. Saunders should be in flower, as well as x hyacinthiflora lilacs. The Greek revival farmhouse was built ca. 1848. Trillium, Cypripedium, Daphne, Camassia and naturalized Taraxacum in abundance.
I am guessing Mr. Lyman wrote that description himself, as there is a bit of a joke in there. (I have quite a bit of naturalized Taraxacum myself.) You can also read this enthusiastic description from 2007.
From Ithaca, go north on Route 96 about 6 miles. Turn right onto Krums Corners Road. Go to sixth driveway on left. Please park on road. $5 admission.
