Let the peony inspire you
One of the most beautiful flowers you can have in your vase at home is the peony. Originally from China, peonies stand out for their beautiful colours and large size. Peonies are very special as they only bloom for a few months in the year. So when you receive a bunch of peonies, you can be sure that it is a wonderful gift and that the person really appreciates you.
The magic of the peony
There are over a thousand varieties of peonies, differing in colour and shape, among other things. There are also herbaceous peonies and bushy peonies. The so-called peony herb has been used as a traditional Eastern medicine for hundreds of years. And even though the peony is a tropical flower, originating in China, it also blooms in many Dutch gardens. If you have one in your garden, you probably recognise the following. When the peony only has buds, there is little to impress. But as soon as flowering starts, an incredible number of magical petals and a lovely scent appear in a very short time. The flower can then grow as large as 15-20 cm. All this magic is surely why the peony, Paeonia, is named after the god of healing.
Less magical are the ants, who love the sweet scent of peonies. So have you cut a peony from your garden. Then take care not to bring any ants inside.
The peony blooms especially for mothers
As you read above, peonies flower in May and June. Provided the weather conditions are right, of course. So peonies are in full bloom when it is Mother's Day in May. That makes a bunch of peonies the perfect gift for your mother, grandmother or bonus mother. Because who doesn't love this impressive rose, which is available in several colours at Surprose. Every year, especially for Mother's Day, we put together some beautiful bouquets for you.
Choose your own number of peonies
Would you like to order a specific number of peonies instead of a bouquet? Then you can have your own number of peonies delivered by Surprose. This gives you a nice and personal gift for the birthday of your family or friends, for example. If someone turns 27, you can surprise them with 27 peonies. This is a very large gift and will look great on the vase in any room! At Surprose you can choose from many colours of peonies, so you can buy the perfect gift for everyone!
Caring for the peony in your vase
Did you buy, receive or get a bunch of beautiful peonies from your own garden? Then of course you want to enjoy them for as long as possible. Cut the peony at an angle of 2 to 5 cm and remove the leaves at the bottom of the stem. Give your peonies room to bloom, so never put too many in the (clean) vase. Don't forget to add the flower food (included) as well. We at Surprose can really guarantee that you won't be disappointed. As good as all the buds of your bunch of peonies will come out in all their splendour, unlike bunches from the DIY store or supermarket. Do you have a bunch where not all the buds come out anyway? The buds naturally have a sugar coating and this coating can prevent the peonies from opening by themselves. In that case, rinse the buds with lukewarm water.
