everything you need to know about peonies

First things first: when is peony season? Peonies are typically in season from late April to early June. They’re native to Asia, Southern Europe and Western North America.

Fun fact: believe it or not, a healthy peony plant can grow as tall as five feet, and live for one hundred years if properly cared for.

What do these fragrant blooms symbolize? Over the centuries, peonies have come to be associated with many positive virtues. For example, a luxurious peony bouquet is the floral symbol of China. In ancient times peonies were believed to relieve headaches and help with asthma.

Peonies are said to symbolize love and happiness (which is why so many brides use them in their wedding bouquets). With their links to Greek mythology, peonies have also become synonymous with good fortune and prosperity.

Do they come in colors other than pink? You might be surprised that there are peonies in a wide array of colors – from the iconic soft pink to white, yellow coral and mahogany. There’s a peony out there for almost any home decor color scheme. So don’t shy away from them because you associate them with bubble-gum pink!

How well do they hold up if given as a gift? Peony bouquets can last about five to seven days. Pro tip: Store your peonies in the fridge overnight to extend their life.
