New Cultivar Registration
Email or Mail Registration Forms to the Registrar
New peony cultivars may be registered using the available forms found on this page. All forms will need to be manually filled out, either by hand or by inserting information through a computer and then submitting them to the Registrar. We recommend using a computer to fill in the forms for an accurate interpretation of the information you supply.

Once the registrar receives registration information, they will review the data for any additional requirements and verify that the proposed name can be used under the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants. The APS Registrar may contact you to clarify or make corrections involving the submitted cultivar registration information. Once the registrar has finalized work, a copy of the registration will be returned to you for final approval. Upon approval the registration is submitted and recorded. Later in the year the registration will be published through an APS document that is distributed to the membership, as well as, the online “Registry of Peonies” (found on this website).
Please note: Registrations submitted late in the year may be processed for publication in the following year. Registration forms filled in by hand require more time to process and may be delayed due to extra work involved.
