Everything You Need to Know About Peonies || Lover.ly
Flower name: Peony (Scientific name: Paeonia)
Season: Spring
Colors available: White, pink, and red
Care: Place cut peonies in a vase of cold water, and add plant food if you have it. Remove all leaves that fall below the water line to ensure longer plant life.
Fun fact: Romantic and fragrant, these blooms signify good fortune and a happy marriage -- perfect for a wedding bouquet. Already married? The peony is the official flower of the 12-year wedding anniversary!
Average wholesale cost: $6/stem
Why we love: Although peonies can be pricey, they are lush in nature so a couple blooms in a bouquet go a long way! Our favorite peony creation is a soft mix of light pink peonies, white garden roses, and sprigs of dusty miller.
