Our spring collection 2019

Peony Red Grace

While the colour slowly flows from ruby to a warm red tone the buds unfold into impressive globes. The flowers are carried on sturdy stems and surrounded by bright green foliage. She is a very graceful and desirable peony. Red Grace is less famous, but she last longer as her counterpart P. Rubra Plena or other red peonies

Peony Buckeye Belle

Beautiful deep red outer petals are cupped around a profusion of golden stamens, antlers and deep mahogany filaments. Softly scented flowers are held erect above the light green foliage. The warm colour tone combines very well with Coral Sunset which flowers at the same time.

Peony Coral Sunset

Peonies are beautiful flowers and Coral Sunset is one of our top players. Bright coral-coloured petals form a semi-filled flower. The color slowly fades into ivory, resulting in an abundance of shades. The large flowers stand on sturdy stems that do not need any support. The warm color combines very well with Buckeye Belle and they bloom at the same time. Coral Sunset is also a very popular flower for weddings and parties.

Peony Ellen Cowley

The petals of the cup shaped flowers change gradually from hot pinkish red to ivory. Slightly dissected and healthy foliage clads the sturdy stems from top to bottom. It is a fresh appearance, so nice for a communion or to brighten up your day.

Quality peony cut flowers fresh from our fields

Cultivated with care

In early spring the lateral buds are removed to ensure that all the energy flows to one beautiful flower. Once the buds are mature they are picked, this is precision work. To avoid any damage the sorting and bundling is done with care and therefore by hand. All this to assure that our cut flower peonies provide more than a week of pleasure. 

Quality pick 

Depending on the weather we pick the mature flower buds once to several times a day. But we never pick more than 1/3 to 1/2 of one plant, to keep the plant healthy and strong and safeguard its future. Only the prettiest and largest buds are selected the others remain on the plant.

After-care

Upon arrival follow the simple instructions which are included. Do not place the flowers close to fruits since the ethylene gases will fast forward the maturing process! Keep them out of direct sunlight. 

Timing

Our peonies are usually available from mid-May until mid-June. We do our best to meet your wishes and expectations, but we depend totally on the weather.

Vase live

There is nothing like a peony to reveal slowly but surely all its beauty. Therefore, we keep our cut flowers the shortest possible time in refrigeration. Once they are in an ambient temperature, they will need a few days to flourish. After that, you can enjoy the open blooms for several more days. 

Spoiled for choice 

We grow about a dozen varieties to assure a continuous flow of freshly picked peonies during a five week period. First we pick the early varieties and as the season progresses, the other varieties follow. 

With so much choice, a mixed bouquet is a good idea, but a combination of early and late varieties is difficult. However, throughout the season, we can overload you with a succession of different and exiting varieties ... which is just the epitome of luxury!
