This research has been focused on the studies on the growth and flowering of some varieties of herbaceous peony under conditions of containerized and forced cultivation. The research was conducted at USAMV Bucharest using as biologic material split bushes with white, pink and red flowers originated from USAMV Bucharest and Singureni, Giurgiu County. The split bushes being planted in pots of 30cm in diameter in autumn in October. After planting, the pots were kept in cold conditions a different number of weeks, after which they have been brought in the greenhouse to be forced. For each of the forced stages, observations have been made, regarding the following phenophases of growing and developing: starting in vegetation, number of sprouts, growth of the sprouts, appearance of the buds, opening of the flowers, fading of the flowers, the flowering time, the flowering percentage. The results obtained show a good behaviour of the herbaceous peony in containerized and forced cultivation, the percentage and the quality of blooming being variable, depending on the variety and the moment of the introduction of the pots in the greenhouse.
