The lovely, double-petaled peony is known as the “king of flowers” in China. It is revered worldwide for its beauty, its fullness, and its sweet summer scent. Peonies have come to represent several different virtues, such as romance, good fortune, compassion, prosperity, honor, and riches. The fluffy peony bush blooms in full sun and is a perennial, bouncing back in the springtime year after year. Some peony bushes have been known to live over 100 years! The peony is often given as the 12th wedding anniversary flower to represent a happy marriage. The petals, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, are edible — making them an incredibly romantic garnish for desserts and drinks! From peony stems to peony bouquets, this versatile flower is sure to be a hit in any venue.
The round, petal-heavy blossoms of cut peonies look wonderful in wedding bouquets, centerpieces, and other floral arrangements, as well. Marco Polo was said to describe these flowers as “roses as big as cabbages!” Choose from several different peony colors such as hot pink, peach, pink, white and red. You can buy these stunning flowers by the bunch or take advantage of our Super Saver Packs. These packs contain everything you need to create a peony wonderland.

To care for cut peonies, begin by trimming about half an inch off the bottoms of the stems and removing any foliage that may be submerged in the vase. Place them in a vase with water and flower food. Keep them in a warm room to make the blossoms open faster; alternately, slow their progression by keeping them in a dark, cool space. Keep them out of the direct sunlig ht and change out the water regularly.
