This bouquet was made this weekend, yes Virginia there are Peonies available in December. Beyond the Los Angeles Flower District Peonies were reportedly seen at Trader Joes both in So Cal and in Northern Virginia this past week. Buy them closed and don’t remove the outer greenery of the bud, this will weaken the head. Once the flowers open this part of the flowers is not seen, just the glory of the petals for all to enjoy. In China it is said that this flower – which is referred to as being known as the “King of Flowers,” symbolizes wealth, good fortune and high position. So pick up some peonies and end this year and start the new year just right.
