The delicate bowl-shaped blooms are the perfect way to breathe freshness and new life into your home or send to someone special as a thoughtful gift.
Ever since the Tang Dynasty, Peony flowers have been hailed as the “King of Flowers”. Peony originates from the Greek word, Paeon, and has its origins rooted in the rich, Greek mythology.
It has been recorded that Peony flowers have been around since 1000 B.C, in China, reaching Japan by the end of the 8th century. They were the national flower of Early China, bred in their imperial courts at the time. Native to Asia, Europe, and Western North America, Peony flowers have been associated with healthcare because of their healing properties. Used to treat asthma and headache and help get relief from the pain associated with childbirth, they saw a rise in popularity over time and were brought to Europe by explorers, thereafter, becoming a symbol of positivity.

Peonies are the symbol of love and romance, wealth and honour, a happy marriage, and good fortune. Their beauty radiates positivity and as a result, they have been deemed great flowers to be used as gifts. You can read more on peony meaning and symbolism in our blog article.
Peonies are the perfect gift for various occasions. Weddings are the best time to gift peonies as the flowers represent a wish for a long and happy marriage together. They are considered the 12th wedding anniversary flower as well, so that’s the perfect occasion. They’re ideal for birthdays, congratulations on a significant life event or for romantic occasions.
Peonies come in various colours, each representing something different. Pink is the most popular, representing love and prosperity, while white represents innocence. Red peony flowers represent passion, and romance. Generally, all colours of peonies are associated with good fortune and positivity.
Peonies do not spread and make new plants on their own. To assist in the propagation of peonies, it is best to divide them.
The bark of the peony contains a toxin called paeonol which is poisonous to cats as it causes gastrointestinal distress when consumed.
Peonies should be cut to the ground when their plants start to turn yellow or brown. Late October or November is the best time to cut them as cutting them during fall helps avoid foliar diseases.
The most appropriate time to prune peonies is right after they bloom. Light pruning before the shrub blooms in spring is also fine.
Peonies require at least 6 to 8 hours of sunlight each day, so it is safe to say that they prefer the sun more than the shade. Proper air circulation and well-drained soil are also essential for peony growth.
