Peonies Sweet Peonies

Beautiful flowers at my daughters Engagement Party!
We had them scattered on tables, in the barn and around the
food and dessert areas. Such elegance with roses, peonies, hydrangeas, greens and berries.

I absolutely love peonies! They are so big bold and beautiful, I only wish they lasted alittle longer in the vase. They seem to last only a couple of days, what's up with that? I now know why Martha Stewart loves peonies, their beauty by far surpasses many other flowers in the garden. They have been around for a couple of thousand years, starting in China. A little fun fact there. They are easy to grow providing you give them plenty of sun and good drainage. They do also need support due to the heaviness in the buds. They are vey heavy and large. This flower has a large payoff considering the low maintenance. So remember the next time you have the opportunity to buy a peony on sale, just do it! You won't be disappointed.
