Can You Guess 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.

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? 

Of the seven images of flowers shown, of which one is the peony, only 5 out of 14 people in a straw poll could correctly identify them - and one of them was a florist - which suggests you could easily substitute another variety without ruining your event!

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.
