The Peony Society
A new initiative, started by peony grower, hybridizer and above all enthusiast Koen Hurtekant from Belgium. This website is kind of a hybrid mixture between a valuable peony archive with a wealth of information, the exchange of knowledge from the good old days of the Yahoo! Groups and modern functionalities like we also find on e.g. Facebook. I really hope this place will become a huge success and the center for sharing peony knowledge. Sign up on this website, participate and enrich our Peony Society!
Without any doubt, thé No.1 peony-database on the web!
American Peony Society (APS)

Please feel free to contact us or the APS for more information.

Everything on the work of the famous Prof. A.P. Saunders
Excellent and very interesting website by Lois Girton to celebrate the ground breaking breeding work in peonies of Prof. A.P. Saunders: "The Father of Modern Peony".
Bloom Date Project
The Bloom Date Project van Michael Denny is a fairly useable reference for comparing the flowering dates of many different peonies. Some foot notes surely should be made, and it hasn't been really updated since 2009. But still it can come in very handy from time to time.
The Archibald Archives
A wealth of information on species peonies in particular, and everything else from the well-known English plant hunter Jim Archibald.
The popular and informative Blog on peonies by Adriana Feng from North Carolina (USA). Entertaining and educational!

In Swedish, but hey, who cares with so many stunning pictures and the nowadays readily available online translators! A really nice blog and website from a real Peonist.
Blog Leo Smit
Back in the day, a very popular blog from a Canadian plant enthusiast, with a special preference for the wild peony species. Not active since about 2011, but the peony world should be grateful that the enjoyable and valuable information shared here is still accessible.
