Like sunsets, rainbows and cherry blossoms, peony flowers are as beautiful to behold as they are brief. Peonies have become a beloved favorite bloom of many an Instagram icon, gracing the desks of lifestyle bloggers the world over. Peonies come in a glorious range of colours – from brilliant blue to blushing pink – and their thick clusters of petals are so full that they almost look cuddly! In New Zealand, we only have a small seasonal window in which to enjoy the thickly cloaked petals of a peony blossom, and this window sits between late October and the beginning of December. If you’re eager to get your hands on a bunch of these blooms, you can order a peony bouquet online, or purchase peonies in our Wellington shop (located in Kilbirnie). Colours available: Currently we have two vibrant peony colours in stock: a ruby ‘charming’ red and a sunset-like coral. Red peonies are rich in velvety colour, and they make for a sentimentally successful bouquet for your sweetheart. For friends and flower fans in general, a coral peony bouquet suggests a setting spring sun, and makes for a vibrant, friendly gesture. Mix it up! Perhaps you’d like to get creative and mix your peonies with roses for a customised bouquet? We love bringing your ideas to life, so just talk to the team at Flower Shop Florist and let us know what you’d like to see in your perfect peony bouquet! If you’d like to grace the desks of your loved ones, friends or even your own desk with a colourful, cuddly bouquet of peonies, you can order a bouquet of peonies for delivery in Wellington here. But you better be quick, because the season flies by faster than you can say bouquet! Are there any other colours you’d like to see in our store in the future? Let us know on our Facebook page – we’ll be sharing a few picture-perfect peony photographs this month to honour this beautiful, transient bloom.
