(pee-o-nees)

Peonies have been a popular cut flower since ancient times. In Greece Peonies are the symbol of healing because of its many medicinal properties. Their large lush blossoms are available in single, semi-double, and double flower heads. Double Peonies are sometimes called “Bomb Peony” because of the explosion of petals upon opening. Vase life varies from 7 to 10 days depending on bud stage and environmental conditions.
