03 Oct October Feature: Peonies
The peony is one of the most highly sought after flowers, but what is it about those small egg-shaped buds in white, pink and burgundy that elicit such enthusiasm from a Flowers on Tedder visitor?
It is, of course, the knowledge and anticipation of that bud opening to a display of delicate, scented petals, forming an unrivalled cluster of beauty. The peony is seen as a symbol of beauty and nobility. Earlier in the year, we enjoyed imported Dutch and French Peonies. The local peony season is short-lived, so make sure you are ready to give a bunch a home when they arrive at Flowers on Tedder.
