Peonies Have Arrived!

Karl Rosenfeld Peonies they are. One of Mother Nature's most beautiful gifts! The first variety available locally is "Karl Rosenfeld", a softly scented double hot pink Peony grown in our own fertile Fraser Valley. With a vase life of 5-7 days they are one of the smaller, early varieties of Peonies available here from now through early June. (depending on weather patterns) Mixed with Tulips, Roses, or Ranunculus, or even better en masse, it just doesn't get any better than this!
Purchased through our local flower auction, these arrive fresh every Tuesday & Thursday during their availability period. As the season progresses, the varieties increase along with the size of the blooms. It's a short availability season, so don't miss them!
Tip: Put them outside at night in the cool spring air to increase their vase life.
