The new varieties of coral peonies are just extraordinary in floristry! For sure, they create the WOW factor, particularly in bride's bouquet. The constrat with the pure white of the bride's gown and the coral of the hand-tied bouquet is just gorgeous!
Either in buds, half-open or fully open, they are really spectacular!
Flower buds are easy to open and open fast.
Flowers are generally simple or semi-double, rarely fully double like the usual lactifloras (Sarah Bernardht ou Red Charm). There is usually a golden center visible in the heart of the flowers. Exception: the variety Etched Salmon, bred by a Canadian with flowers pink coral fully doubles.
All the coral peonies in floral arrangements either alone or in mix with other colors & flowers create the WOW effect.
