Care and Handling
Petals should be kept dry as they are prone to mold. Peonies are wilt sensitive, so avoid prolonged periods out of water.
These fragrant, massive flowers work well alone in a bouquet or mixed arrangement. The thin stems may require wiring or other support for the heavy heads. Leave room in a design for blooms to open fully.
Colors: White, pink, burgandy, rose.
