2021 Seed List

The American Peony Society’s Seed Distribution Program has a wide variety of outstanding seeds available each year. Choices from the following groups are available: P. lactiflora cultivars, herbaceous hybrids, woody (tree) species, herbaceous species, woody Hybrid (P. suffruticosa) and woody hybrid (Rockii, Gansu Mudan lineage). Most seed is the result of open pollination, meaning the pollen parent is unknown, which can produce a wide variation of seedling flower color, form and size. Although seeds are listed by parent flower color and form, it is wise to remember peony seedlings will not be copies of their parents and resulting color and form will likely be different.

Seed packets are available to APS Members each year through July 31, while supply lasts. Information regarding: available seed, ordering, prices and shipping can be found within the seed list or in the Resource blocks at the bottom of the page.
