It’s that time of year again where we have peonies in stock. Since it’s a very short season, it’s a good excuse to order these gorgeous flowers to decorate your home, add to your upcoming nuptials, or include in a flower arrangement that you are gifting to a special someone.=
All About Peonies
Peonies are long-life perennials that start to produce a magnificent display of single and double blooms in an array of colors – from white to deep red – in late spring and early summer, depending where you live in the U.S.
Peonies also have glossy, dark green leaves that shine all season long.
There are six main types of herbaceous peonies:
- Single: This peony has a single or double row of broad petals that encircle fertile stamens with carpels visible.
- Japanese: This peony has a single or double row of broad petals that encircle broadened staminodes that may carry pollen along the edges with carpels visible.
- Anemone: This peony also has a single or double row of broad petals that encircle narrow incurved petal-like staminodes while fertile stamens are absent but carpels visible.
- Semi-double: This peony has a single or double row of broad petals that encircle further broad petals that are intermingled with stamens.
- Bomb: This peony has a single row of broad petals that encircle a shorter dense area of narrower petals.
- Double: This peony has a flower that only consists of many broad petals, including those that are altered stamens and carpels.
