Seasonal Favourite
Peonies
 
May - a month which welcomes an abundance of flowers, but there is one stem whose return truly sets hearts aflutter. From late April the peony, celebrated for it’s frothy, layered petals begins to make its highly anticipated appearance. Show-stopping in mono-floral bouquets or nestled amongst bodacious urn arrangements - whichever guise the flower takes it is likely to steal the spotlight! Fans of the pom-pom bloom rejoice - there are numerous varieties to marvel, from single-petaled specimens to triple-decker darlings. Meet just some of our favourites...

'Bowl of Cream' Peony - Rowan Spray
Bowl of Cream

Aptly named ‘Bowl of Cream’ are double-petaled wonders. Bridal white and lightly fragrant these large-headed peonies look gloriously cloud-like en masse or steal the show in a seasonal display.

Coral Charm

A semi-double-petaled variety - with a magical quality. Beginning a vibrant shade of salmon pink, the Coral Charm peony goes on a wonderful colour journey, turning a soft-peach shade and finishing in a pale yellow. Mid-transformation you may spot an enchanting psychedelic effect!

Coral Charm Peonies - Rowan Spray
Sarah Bernhardt

This rosy-coloured creation is one of the most popular varieties - it ticks all the peony boxes. We are over the moon to see the return of the Botan bouquet featuring Sarah Bernhardt and Dr Flemming peonies - available for London and nationwide delivery.

Claire de Lune

The elegant Claire de Lune a statement, single-petalled stem, and offers a more beguiling and ethereal quality than the classic peony. We are particularly entranced but its sunshine-yellow centre.

Red Charm

Peonies don’t just come in a plethora of pinky pastel shades - Red Charm is one of our favourite deep-crimson varieties, bold but still satisfyingly fluffy.
