Herbaceous Peony Species are plants as they occur in the natural habitat, or are very closely related. Often these selections of wild plants were used for crossing and are thus parents of the first generation of numerous widely distributed cultivated varieties. Many of these specimens are true rarities and threatened by extinction in the wild. In the genus Paeonia there are both herbaceous and woody wild species. Almost all of them are characterized by relatively small, simple flowers and a very early flowering time. Most wild species prefer very dry sites and are rather slow in growth compared to their hybrid offspring.
In addition to Herbaceous Species, P. lactiflora and Herbaceous Hybrids are part of the Herbaceous Peony assortment. On this page you will now see only Herbaceous Species. More information about all Herbaceous Peonies and useful tips on planting and care can be found here.
