APS Membership Join/Renew
All interested persons are invited to join and participate in APS’ activities.
Members receive The APS Bulletin, published quarterly, in March, June, September and December.
The Bulletin offers an in-depth look at all aspects of the peony for
backyard gardeners, hybridizers, hobbyists, commercial growers and cutflower merchants.
Our advertisers provide source information for peony and garden purchases.
Other benefits include…
Contact with other peony devotees and local and regional society’s information. Use the APS Yearbook’s Membership Roster to locate members in your area.
Seed Distribution Program—A list of available seeds is published annually on the APS Website. For a nominal fee members may request the seeds of their choice.
An Annual Convention in various North American locations, featuring peony-related events and activities, such as, informative talks and discussions, garden tours, cutflower exhibits and a banquet followed by an auction.
APS acts as the International Cultivar Registration Authority for peonies. While supervising nomenclature and publishing checklists, the history of the peony is also maintained. Color photos of some new registrations are featured in The Bulletin.
