One of the most important aspects of having a quality peony flower on the vase is the moment of harvesting. Every variety has its own harvesting moment to ensure maximum quality and vase life. As a consumer in general it’s important that the peony bud has some “color” on the bud and that the flower is already slightly opening at the moment of buying your peony flowers. If the bud is firmly closed, chances are that the flower will not open. When putting your peony flowers in a vase it’s important to use a clean vase, clean water and use some sort of cut flower food or fertilizer to ensure maximum vase life. It’s also important to remove some if the leaves so no leaves will touch the water in your vase. Keep the peony flowers away from fruits and direct sunlight and enjoy your beautiful peony flowers.
