Some of the other seeds had rotted. Do most of you scarify peony seeds?
I never scarify peony seed and it comes up without problems.  It does seem as though there are always a few that rot, but for me it has been minor.  The most important requisite for germination seems to be a nice cold period.  Even here in Zone 9 on the southwest coast of Oregon, peony seed apparently gets enough chill to germinate.
