Paeonia, peony is the only genus in the family Paeoniaceae.

The peony is named after Paeon, a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil, Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.
So think about that next time you go picking peonies :D

I love Peonies.  We had many plants where I grew up and they smelled so good.  I wish we could grow them in Florida.

Yes peonies are most beautiful, but why can't you grow them in Florida?

They need they need the cold to flower.   We live too far south and don't have enough cold in the winter.  The greenery survives but they don't get flowers.  :(
