|I'm wondering how to get all the information I need to add a peony to the database. All I have is the trade name. I don't know the cultivar or series name & I'm not sure where to find them. Is there a peony society website where I can look this information up? The peony in question is John Harvard. Thanks!|

|It looks like 'John Harvard' is the cultivar name for this Peony.|
The American Peony Society is the ICRA for Paeonia and they maintain the Peony registry. Here's a link to their website and the printed registry.
I often use Carsten Burkhardt's Web Project Paeonia site to review names, history, etc. Here's a link to the page for 'John Harvard'.

|Thank you so much! I know nothing about peonies. I'm more familiar with daylilies and there are lots of unregistered daylilies that can't be added to the database. I was worried the same might be true for peonies. Now I know where to check!|
