Our August peonies are here and ready for your enjoyment. There are few flowers that are more of a crowd-pleaser than our very own farm-fresh peonies!
Our peony collection includes a variety of colorful peony varieties that range from festive pinks and reds to pillowy whites. Our new mixed bouquet named ‘Leo’ contains peonies with eucalyptus and salal, offering a fresh take on our cut-to-order arrangements.
Once our summer peonies reach your doorstep, you’ll see that our peonies are delivered in bud form for weeks of long lasting enjoyment. It takes just a little bit of tender loving care to make sure these buds of opportunity bloom to their full potential, so we’ve put together a little guide on how to get your peonies to really open up.
Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
- A vase
- Flower food
Step 1: Because our peonies are cut-to-order and delivered from our farms, they may have some extra leaves on them. Start by removing a few of the lower outer leaves from the stems to give them a more sleek look. Take off just the right amount to suit your style, you can make your bouquet as tame or wild as you like!
Step 2: Trim a few inches off the stems so that the peonies fit your vase. We recommend trimming the bottoms at a 45 degree angle because this helps the stems absorb water more efficiently.
Step 3: Arrange your peonies on a flat surface and tie them together with the twine. This keeps the flowers bunched together so they look even more full once they bloom in the vase!
Step 4: Fill your vase with water and pour in a packet of flower food to keep the water clean (this helps to extend the life of the flowers). Next, place your arrangement in the vase and give it a bit of a touch up, if needed. All you have to do now is watch them bloom!
After a few days in water, your peony buds will open up and reveal their soft, fluffy petals. We’d love to see how you arranged your peony bouquet, show us by using #Bouqlove and tagging us @TheBouqsCo on Instagram.
