There are thousands of varieties of peonies, but a couple of varieties stand out as favorites when it comes to floral design. Double peonies have multiple rows of petals arising from the crown; these fluffy, generous petals often completely obscure the center of the bloom. Looking a bit like pompoms, balls, or globes – and able to grow to very large sizes – the flowers once caused the explorer Marco Polo to exclaim “these roses are as big as cabbages!”  Peonies look amazing either in standalone bouquets or as a featured flower in a spring bouquet.

How Very Romantic: If you are getting married, you may wish to consider a bouquet of peonies, as they are regarded as symbolic of good marital fortune and a happy life.
