Peonies are most definitely a timeless flower, having graced gardens and bouquets for centuries. In ancient times, they were revered as symbols of wealth, honour, and prosperity, adorning the gardens of emperors and nobility. Today, they continue to captivate hearts with their understated glamour and enduring beauty, symbolizing love, romance, and good fortune.

Caring for Your Peonies:

While peonies are fairly fleeting beauties, their blooms can be enjoyed for an extended period with proper care. Here are some tips to help you prolong the lifespan of these pretty flowers:


  • Freshness Matters: our designs include blooms with as many being as tight as possible for maximum enjoyment.
  • Trim the Stems: Before arranging peonies, trim the stems at an angle and remove any leaves that will be submerged in water. This helps the flowers absorb water more effectively and prevents bacterial growth.
  • Water Wisely: Place peonies in a clean vase filled with fresh water and change the water every couple of days to keep it clean and clear.
  • Keep Cool: Peonies prefer cool temperatures, so avoid placing them in direct sunlight or near sources of heat.

Now you know how to care for them, you can enjoy the show! Sit back, relax, and admire the beauty of your peonies as they delicately unfurl their petals.

Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or simply seeking to add a touch of elegance to your day, peonies are sure to delight and inspire with their timeless allure and understated grace.
