Florist & Wholesaler Information

  • This very popular garden flower also makes a great cut flower.
  • Peonies are available from the northern hemisphere ( North America, Holland, Europe)  May and June and the southern hemisphere ( Chile, New Zealand, South Africa) October to December.
  • Available in a wide range of colours.
  • Peony types:
  • Single (low petal, stamen center)
  • Semi-Double (high petal, stamen center)
  • Double (high petal, low stamen)
  • Japanese (low petal, unique stamen)
  • Anemone (low petal, unique stamen)
  • Double Bomb (single row of large petals, cluster bomb of center petals, no stamen).
  • Semi Double, Double & Double Bomb varieties perform best as cut flowers.
  • Usually softly scented.
  • Peonies will arrive in tight bud stage but always open very well.
  • Care and Handling:
  • Peonies should be hydrated out of the cooler in water with the proper amount of floral preservative.
  • The fleshy stems of Peonies can quickly cloud the water and water should be changed frequently.
  • Peonies dry store exceptionally well in a cooler and will still drink and open gloriously. 
  • In ideal conditions, dry-stored Peonies can be hydrated up to 3 weeks later!
  • The blooms open quickly, and will only last a few days once hydrated, therefore don't hydrate peonies until you need them
  • Try selling buds to clients, watching the blooms open is a unique floral experience (and it gives them a longer vase life). 

Grading Information

  • Should be graded by stem length and bunched by 10 stems.
  • Florist quality Peonies should be a minimum of 50 cms tall.
  • In New Zealand Peonies are also graded by mm bloom diameter measured on the tight buds.

Grower and Breeder Information

  • Should be shipped with blooms showing colour but not open.
  • Careful packing is required to avoid shifting and shipping damage.
