The American Peony Society Seed Distribution Program
Sharing a Wealth of Genetics from Gardeners, Growers and Hybridizers Worldwide
The American Peony Society’s Seed Distribution Program gives APS members a chance to share the genetics of potentially thousands of peony cultivars, including many hybrids and species. For a small fee, seed packets are available to members. The program also provides free seeds to organizations and institutions for educational or research purposes.
Donated seed comes from APS members, both backyard hobbyists and collectors, as well as professional growers and hybridizers. Most are packets of open pollinated seeds with the name of seed or pod parent listed, except for some packets of mixed seed. In some instances, they are labeled with a specific cross or as hybrid seeds from specific hybridizers.
Seed packets are available to APS Members at the National Convention, and are offered online each year through July 31, while supply lasts.
