Where we started

The Canadian Peony Society was formed in January 1998. It was founded by John Simkins, a remarkable individual who specialized in peonies. He grew about 1200 of them around his home.


There are currently over 300 members (from Newfoundland to British Columbia) in the Society; membership is open to anyone with an interest in peonies. We are always looking for new members!


The Society’s activities include: a quarterly newsletter, "Paeonia Nordica"; an online discussion group on Yahoo; plant sales; a seed exchange; and an annual national flower show.
