Peonies have different bloom times in the spring depending on the variety. In Calfornia, dependant on the early spring/late winter weather, our bloom season begins the later part of April to very early June. If you are planting in hot spring/summer areas, the best varieties to grow would be our early to midseason varieties as the late season varieties may not open well if the temperatures are too hot.
