The Peony Society

Welcome to the home of The Peony Society. Our goal is to create an online community of peony enthusiasts. We aim to be the one place people go to when they want to read and discuss the genus Paeonia.

What do we have on offer for you, peony afficionado?

On the home page you will find the latest news posted on social media from peony nurseries, societies and other peony enthusiasts. The latest articles, forum topics, cultivar comments and species images are also available on this page and you can click through for more.

The website offers a database of registered cultivars and a key to and description of the peony species.

Next to that you can also join groups. There are both geographical and thematic groups. If you feel that a group is missing, you can create one.

It’s also possible to search the member database. If you find some people this way, you can then view their profile and contact them.

Registering and logging in will give you a more personalised version of the website where you will have the opportunity to interact with other members and comment on all content of the website.

The site can be translated with google web translator, which you will find on most pages. Just select the language of your choice and translation will be done as you browse. For english speakers, you can select ‘english’ and this can be very useful when coming across some news items on the home page in other languages.

Any suggestions you may have to improve the site further are appreciated: contact the webmaster.

Concerns about your privacy? There’s a page with more information about our Privacy Policy.

Night Watch is a very dark red peony. Somewhat lower growing, it flowers profusely. This should be an anomala seedling and was hybridized by A.P. Saunders. As we have featured his peonies on the homepage this month, we thought it nice to showcase this variety. If you grow some of ...

We'll post more on the site www.peonysociety.eu and leave Instagram and Facebook more to itself, except for some updates regarding the site. Time spent here is time lost on the site after all, and I'd like to add some new content there as well, the 'activity stream' and messaging system ...

Rather weird, I would say: Paeonia kesrouanensis again. The flower corresponds to the description in Hong's book, but I did not expect it to flower already as the leaflets haven't unfolded as yet. Great and strong fragrance. Style/stigma well curved as can be seen in the last picture. #paeoniakesrouanensis #paeonia ...

Some species peonies have started growing in the greenhouse. The most remarkable one being Paeonia kesrouanensis, showing its petal colors before the foliage. Next is Paeonia corsica (or Paeonia morisii if you like to 'split' species). Last one Paeonia clusii, showing wider leaflets than as a young seedling. #paeonia #paeoniakesrouanensis ...

A lone flower of Canary Brilliants now blooming. The only cultivar I know that can be forced into reblooming. The flowers in that second bloom time are always more double. With that in mind, all plants have been dug and divided last October. Now all first year plants, we do ...

Daedalus, a shrubby peony from the works of Nassos Daphnis. Large plant, some 2 m wide, 1.6 m tall. Pretty deep red colour. Some 30 flowers on it. Good performer each year. #peonies #thepeonysociety

One of the nicest herbaceous peonies. Early flowering and double, Paeonia wittmanniana x Paeonia lactiflora, a Saunders hybrid and probably our favorite amongst the varieties introduced by this intrepid peony hybridizer. His works are central to this year’s American Peony Society convention. #americanpeonysociety #saunderspeonies #peonies #thepeonysociety
