All About Peonies

PeoniesThere is no doubt that spring is here. It’s in the air and everywhere we go. It’s also the time of year for the best selection of brightly colored cut flowers. Here at Ah Sam Florist, we want our customers to enjoy all the flowers that spring has to offer – especially one of the season’s most luxurious flowers: the peony.

Background Information on Peonies

Peonies are native to places in the Northern Hemisphere. They have been cultivated in Asia and Europe for centuries. Peonies fall into different categories based on use and other characteristics. Those categories are:

  • Herbaceous
  • Tree
  • Intersectional
  • Woodland

Herbaceous Peonies – The Most Spectacular Cut Flowers

Herbaceous perennial peonies are the most well-known, primarily because they produce such spectacular cut flowers. These disease resistant shrubs bloom between spring and summer, and in the garden, flowers typically bloom for seven to 10 days. After the blooming period, the shiny dark green foliage continues to provide interest in the garden. The leaves remain on plants until they die back to the ground in winter.

We chose some of our favorite flower arrangements that use peonies because we think they are perfect for a gift – especially for Mother’s Day. There is no better way to bring some fragrance and color into your home for spring than with an arrangement of peonies. Herbaceous peonies are popular because they are so ideal for cut flowers.
