Style secrets for peony fans

In a world that’s changing at an ever increasing pace, style and fashion have always been particularly ethereal. What’s in today will be very much out tomorrow. Following trends is treading dangerous waters, hoping you’ve read the latest and made one or two lucky guesses. To help you keep your head above waters, we’ve compiled fashion advice for the peony aficionado - based on the timeless sense of style of the peony itself.

1. Bloom big (… and then go bigger)

Who said less is more? Try dreaming big for a change, and look sensational doing so! If you decide to take the spotlight, be the most outrageous, glamorous version of you. To see how it’s done you’ll only have to look at the peony in bloom; an eye-catching spectacle of colour and volume. For more inspiration, explore varieties such as Command Performance, Dinner Plate and Pillow Talk. Their flowers are big (up to 250 mm), with lush lacy petals. Think you can go bigger?

2. Have it both ways

Shabby chic, or neon glam? A romantic getaway to the countryside, or a refreshing afternoon at the coolest club in town? Trust us – in fashion, you don’t have to choose. Have it both ways. Mix tones, looks and accessories into a thoroughly unique blend of you-ness. Whatever your style, you can count on our purple peonies to perfect your looks. Brilliant varieties like Avis Varner, Kansas and Red Sarah Bernhardt are equal parts sweet and sharp, hot and cold, fit for bouquets or as single flowers.

3. Heart the classics

White never goes out of style, period. Contrast your favourite colours with the bright white of exclusive ski resorts, over-the-top dream weddings and the humble frappuccino to go. If your looking for matching peonies, you really can’t go wrong with classic varieties such as Bridal Shower, Duchesse de Nemours and Baroness Schroeder. They’re cool, elegant and subtly fragrant, ideal in a stylish bouquet or dazzling decoration. These classic white peonies don’t throw any shade, is all we’re saying.
