Peonies are one of my most favorite flowers. They are beautiful cut-lowers as they are beautiful in the garden. When they are season you can find them at farmers’ markets, if you have Whole Foods in your city, or other flower shops. Peonies last a long time at least a week or two but choose the buds and be patient they will open and bloom in a day.
There are three types of peonies: herbaceous Peonies, Tree Peonies, or Itoh, hybrids.
