This beauty will be shining in many vases this month, but can also be seen extensively in bridal bouquets and striking centrepieces. Introduce your customers to the peony!
The peony’s origin
We have been enjoying the magnificent peony in Europe since 1784. In China they had fallen under its spell long before that. There the peony was cultivated not only for its flowers, but particularly for its roots. According the Chinese it could be used to reduce fever and clot blood. But we don’t recommend putting the peony in your mouth – stick to enjoying its beauty with your eyes.
The peony’s colours and shapes
Anyone who falls for the charms of the peony is in luck: there are more than 1000 varieties available in all sorts of shapes and colours. They come with a single row of petals, or with semi-double or double flowers. There is also ample choice in terms of colour: the cheerful peony comes in pale yellow, romantic white, candy pink or dark red. And the fragrance of peonies is particularly appealing and beautifully sweet!
The peony represents love, happiness and health, amongst other things. It’s no surprise that the peony is a popular guest at spring weddings. But it’s not just lovebirds that are attracted to this flower. Surely we all enjoy bringing a big bunch of positivity and love into our home?
