Introduce your customers to the peony!
The peony’s origin
We have been enjoying the magnificent peony in Europe since 1784. In China they had fallen under its spell long before that. There the peony was cultivated not only for its flowers, but particularly for its roots. According the Chinese it could be used to reduce fever and clot blood. But we don’t recommend putting the peony in your mouth - stick to enjoying its beauty with your eyes.
Caring for peonies
Trim 5 cm off the stem diagonally with a sharp knife.
Use a clean vase and fill it with fresh water.
If your peonies are thirsty top up the vase.
Don’t place the vase in a draught, in full sun or near the fruit bowl.
