Canadian Peony Society – Celebrating 25 Years



Celebrating 25 years of peonies in Canada

Our 25th Anniversary Committee will present an amazing overview of the society, including many facets that are perhaps unknown to our members, by interviewing past presidents, volunteers, lifetime members, hybridizers, vendors, growers, and collectors past and present to hear how they all interconnect to support the CPS today.


Add these dates to your calendar so you do not miss out on our peony specialist talks.
You must be a member to participate.
