I want peonies at my wedding but just found out they’re not in season when I’m getting married. Is there anything I can do?

Expert: Krisi Johnson of GRO Designs

At GRO, we are constantly researching farms and wholesalers to get our clients the absolute best quality product but also to source flowers that aren’t readily available.  Currently, we can source peonies into late August, which has been amazing for our late summer weddings. However, if it is a time of year that peonies are absolutely not available or if the quality of the peonies isn’t in line with expectations, then we would recommend for our clients premium English Garden Roses, Japanese Ranuculous, or Double Tulips to achieve the same heavy petal count, delicateness, and fullness that people love from the peony.
