YELLOW PEONIES IN FLORISTRY!

 

True YELLOW!

The yellow peonies are new in floristry. Those flowers came from new peony varieties recently bred & put on the market.

We have to separate them in 2 categories because their floristry properties are different.

 

FIRST CATEGORY: THE YELLOW' S INTERSECTIONAL PEONIES

 

TRUE & VIVID YELLOW! The more spectacular are the varieties Bartzella & Garden Treasure (see pictures). They originate from collector's peonies created in 1999....from an impossible mix: a cross between a tree and an herbaceous peony. Expensive plants & flowers but....just gorgeous flowers!

They have very strong stems and a typical tree foliage( tree) but shiny (herbaceous).

Huge flowers with a divine fragrance. PLEASE NOTE: the flower's bud opens very fast, within 24 hours even for double or semi-double flowers.

Nothing is perfect, however, they have a shorter vase life than the usual big doubles, not more than 3-4 days in good conditions. So, not recommended for floral arrangements in hotels (who ask for a week) but their beauty will create the WOW factor in events of limited duration.

Many varieties available, generally from mid-June to the beginning of July with my latest bloomer, beautiful Garden Treasure!

 

SECOND CATEGORY: THE NEW VARIETIES OF YELLOW HERBACEOUS PEONIES.

 

There is many varieties of peonies in the pale shades of yellows, between pale yellow and cream. They are almost unknow on the market. Those varieties are usually rare in production, are mainly early bloomers (many weeks before the big doubles) and most of them bear simple flower form. Prairie Moon (simple to semi-double), Roy Pehrson Best Yellow ( simple), Goldilocks (a rare bomb type double) are few exemples.

BUT, from the last 10-15 years, 2 new varieties have appeared on the market with a high demand because they have TRUE YELLOW flowers with absolutely gorgeous fragrance: Sunny Girl et Lemon Chiffon. Rare and very expensive Their main advantage: a very good vase life compare to the intersectional yellow peonies from Category 1.

BGood shiny foliage. Strong stems but less than the intersectional yellows.

Flower's bud open as the regular double, between 24-48 hours with a vase life of about a week.

So, if you need floral arrangements in yellow tones and a longer vase life, they are mor suitable for your needs.

Always with the yellows: limited plants and so....limited cut flowers. Available the first 2 weeks of June usually.
