The peony season is well and truly here and in my opinion the most prized and short lived season of any flower. The best are around for only 6 - 8 weeks (May-June) and I encourage every bride getting married at this time to use them somewhere.
The down side with peonies is that sometimes they don't open and this is usually because they have been cut by the growers too early. Always buy the best quality you can afford. One of my personal favourites is Coral Charm. The coral/orange colour is bang on trend (see Chelsea Flower Show 2016) and as it opens it fades to peach - so divine!
