Wim - the peony I grow are Paeonia lactiflora and Paeonia officinalis. I understand that on Crete you have two native varieties Paeonia parnassica and Paeonia clusii - both protected by the Bern Convention of 1979. Despite the protection I am aware that the two native varieties are declining because of development of coastal areas and because of plant collectors.
The information in Wikipedia is fairly generalised and the information in Nature is three years old. There is always a chance on websites such as these that there is a botanist or keen gardener who is a member and will provide specific information.
Laid Back Lil - no, I do not need information on weather conditions in Crete.
I had thought this forum was about Crete in general and not exclusively about people wanting to live or retire to Crete - perhaps I was wrong.
