Peonies are my all time favorite flower! Here are a few pics of the peonies from my garden last spring along with a peony arrangement trick and a new garden tradition...
Peony Arrangement Party Trick!
Want peonies for your next spring party? Cut your peonies when the buds are just opening and are showing a lot of color. Then refrigerate without water for up to one week. Recut peony stems when ready to arrange and enjoy!
New Garden Tradition
For special anniversaries or occasions plant a peony bush or your other favorite variety in honor of the event. My dad planted a hydrangea bush in my front yard to celebrate the birth of my twins. When I got home from the hospital it was there to surprise me and will be there for years to come!
