Paeonia is a quarterly newsletter devoted to the hybridization and breeding of all types of peonies. Paeonia has been mailed
out to about a hundred subscribers from all over the world for more than thirty years. The newsletter was started in 1970
by Silvia Saunders (daughter of America's greatest peony hybridizer, Professor A. P. Saunders). It has been published continuously
ever since. The purpose of the newsletter is to provide a forum for the exchange of information among amateur breeders and
backyard gardeners alike, so that they can help each other to achieve their individual hybridizing goals. Articles cover a
wide range of topics such as: pollen collection and storage, pollenization methods, seed and seedling handling, germination
techiques, in-door winter storage methods, growing seedling under artifical lights and many others. Breeding yellow and orange
herbaceous peonies have been hot topics for many years.
This is one of my intersectional hybrid seedlings which has been named and registered as
Singing in the Rain (Smith, 2002).
