Which Flowers Look Just Like Peonies?

November 02, 2017

Sometimes leading event stylists decree that a certain flower is the "ONLY" one to have at your special event - or perhaps you keep seeing a certain floral arrangement appear in all the cool blogs.

And right now it would seem any event isn't "right" or even stylish without peonies.

But what time of the year is your event?

Do you think you - and even more importantly, your guests - can correctly identify the flowers?

If you aren't quite sure what they look like, do you even need to include them? 

And essentially, do you know when they're in season?

Peonies (photo 4) flower very briefly in October through November - so unless your event occurs during those two spring months, you have virtually no chance of having them in your centrepieces without paying to have them imported.

Both carnations (photo 7) and lisianthus (photo 1) are available year-round.

Both double tulips (photo 3) and ranunculus (photo 5) are available year-round, but you will have more colours to choose from during Spring.

David Austin Cabbage roses (photo 6) and Rosalind roses (photo 2) are available October through May - the peak entertaining season.
