Gah! Who isn’t in love with these pink fluffy balls of delight that grace our shores in November each year. We’ve been using peonies for the past couple of weeks and you guys are loving them!
There aren’t many garden plants that are surrounded with as much mystique as the peony, and it’s clear why.
What starts as a tight flower, slowly opens up to reveal a multitude of delicate petals and a fringe of what looks like pure gold at their centre, gaining them their nickname ‘Queen of the Flowers’. Their fleeting season – generally only 6-8 weeks – also makes them especially sort after.
Peonies are relatively easy to grow providing you have a good cold winter, so it makes sense the best of Australia’s peonies hail from Tasmania.
Please note, we get them fresh from the flower market the day we send them out, and as such they might be tight when you receive them. Be sure to trim the stems and place them in a nice, sunny spot and they should open within a few days. Did you know we have other posy care tips on our FAQ page here?
