Peonies. They’re the most fashionable flower around. And what’s not to love? They’re the Cara Delevingne of the flower world. Instafamous, super stylish and just a little bit sassy.
Read on to find out more about why peonies make the dreamiest gift going. Plus we share our top tips for peony care and how to arrange these stunning stems at home.
When are peonies in season?
Peonies are only in season for a very short time, typically from late April to June (blink and you’ll miss them!). The fact that they’re so illusive only makes us want them more.
How long do peonies last?
Peonies have a naturally shorter vase life than most other flowers – around five days (oh how we wish they’d stick around a little longer!). Because their vase life is short but sweet most good florists will send your peonies out in bud (we know we do). Don’t worry if your blooms look less than impressive on delivery. Give those golf ball buds a couple of days, and WOW, POW, look at them now! Their big blousy blooms will open before your eyes. Just like magic.
