Dear All;
	With Mary Sue's nod of approval that peonies are geophytic 
enough for this list (and I certainly agree), I'd like to mention in 
passing a new book that I was involved with that is now available. 
'The Genus Paeonia" (J.Halda and J. Waddick, Timber Press) is the 
first extensive generic review since 1958. It has been getting a good 
preliminary reception and I think it clarifies a mass of confused 
peony names in the literature. You can read more about it at:…

	Copies are available from Timber Press, and most 
on-line book sellers. One of these days I'll send Mary Sue an intro 
on the topic, but it is one of the busy seasons so time is limited. 
Thanks for looking it up.
