Are Peonies Available in September?

 

We just received this question on Facebook: “I have a September bride who would love to have white peonies! Is this possible?”  I wanted to make sure that this particular subject made it onto our blog so that the answer is easier to find.  As you know Mother Nature plays a big factor in what is available when, so I checked with our purchasing department and here is the current status on peonies:

 

We will start with peonies next around the second week of Oct  from Chile and New Zealand.

Alaska had a heat wave this year that pushed all of their crop to bloom early, so they are already done.

There may be some stored stuff still around from Holland but the quality cannot be ensured.

 

If you have a client, bride, or groom, for that matter, who really want peonies when they aren’t available one substitute that could be recommended is white garden roses.

    Hi,
    I am trying to get my hands on a dozen peonies for one of my brides. I hand press flowers in my home state, Louisiana. I can’t seem to find any in my area at this time of the year. If you could lead me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you,
    Hannah Castille
