What's The Must-Have Flower For Your Wedding? - Part 4: Peony
Season: mostly May-June. Peonies from Chile are available late October-December.
Price: High, but when you think about the size of the flower, so worth it!
Meaning: Peonies are very lush and full-bodied flowers, most often meaning good fortune, luxury, and prosperity. Peonies are also said to symbolize good wishes and loving marriages.
Cool Fact: Peonies originated in China, AND not only are their blooms greatly treasured, but their foliage is often used as greenery in arrangements.
Why we LOVE them: When I think romance, I think peonies! They look almost feather-soft, like gorgeous clouds...and their fragrance is amazing!!!

So far we have featured Peonies, Calla Lilies, Roses, and Cymbidium Orchids....one more feature left to go! I won't give away the name of this super-popular bloom until tomorrow, but I'll give you a hint: it also has MANY layers of petals like the Peony. :)
