Peony portraits is a place to explore and expand on the individuality of peony species and varieties.  Each peony will be defined, expanded and discussed from all possible angles.  This will include, we hope, cultivation, hybrids, relatives and more.  Our first "Portrait" gives a good example of the sort of information we hope to include.   We invite anyone to prepare a Portrait for exclusive use on the HPS Web Site.  If any reader is willing, please write to the webmaster at (webmaster@peonies.org) to discuss our needs. We welcome all participants and hope to add portraits as time allows. 
Peony names and the science of taxonomy are in constant change. Recent changes in taxonomy are yet to receive wide awareness or compliance. In the interest of conserving more familiar names, the illustrations on this page reflect conserved names for familiar plants. Those that may not  reflect the most current proposals are marked with an asterisk*. I hope the intent is clear and will be clarified by future detailed new portraits.

Please let us know what you think of this new web feature.
