33 species in one genus are found in north temperate regions. The family is related to Ranunculaceae.

Schwartz et al. (1957) included paeonies in general (Paeonia spp.) in a list of plants that might irritate the skin of florists, gardeners, and field labourers, probably only on the basis of their botanical classification in the Ranunculaceae at that time.
