The goal of MPS is to acquire healthy named varieties to promote the interest in peonies by acquainting buyers with growers from around the country. We strive to bring an unique sampling of peonies to demonstrate the availability of varieties while bringing together fellow peony enthusiasts. The bidding process is exciting and fun.
