The American Peony Society was established in 1903 to promote cultivated peonies and foster studies to improve its worth as a garden plant.
Early on, founders recognized the need for standardization of peony names and this initiative continues to be a major component of the APS. There are over 6,000 varieties of peonies.
Numerous member-focused activities are gaining popularity in a time of a peony renaissance. Among the most popular events is the APS Convention, the largest Peony event in North America, which draws international peony enthusiasts. The APS Annual Flower Show, the “crown jewel” of the convention, is also open to the public.
This free show offers a rare opportunity to see a dazzling array of peonies, including cut flowers, artistic floral designs and educational exhibits. Garden tours during the event give members a rare opportunity to enjoy and learn about peonies and their growers. The annual convention also features entertaining and informational seminars that serve beginners through expert.
The Society promotes many wide ranging initiatives beyond the convention. APS is working to involve more people through today’s ever changing gardening needs, which also include a greater social media presence.
Ever changing, the Society is working to provide opportunities for all that are interested in the peony!
Webfitters worked closely with the APS team to build an online space that would give their visitors a better user experience as well as a fully functioning Registry Database of peony.
