Your box of grower’s choice peonies has arrived but before you start unwrapping them, there are a few things you need to know. We're breaking down a few general FAQs on how our peonies are shipped and what you can expect from your blooms!
Waterless delivery is intentional. We want you to be able to enjoy the full bloom life of your peonies and if we shipped them with a water source they would open up too soon. This does not damage the bloom in any way, but it does mean your peonies will need their ends cut with clean snips and a tall drink of water!
We send out our peonies in bud form or as we call them "lollipops" so that you’ll get to witness the blooming magic!
Wilty as charged! Bottom foliage tends to wilt and that is totally normal! While leaving the leaves on for transit is important for flower health, it’s best to remove most of the foliage once you receive your peonies. Leave the bottom petals and leaves at the top of the flower to help feed and support the heavy heads of the peonies and make sure bottom foliage that touches the water is removed.
Note! The outside petals are called "guard" petals. They help protect the pretty petals inside but are not so pretty themselves. They are often discolored or brown. They can be removed easily.

Our tulip fields, bursting with vibrant colors, are a sight to behold. We take great pride in the quality of our flowers, ensuring that each one is carefully and lovingly tended to throughout its lifecycle. As we walk through the rows of tulips, we select the best and brightest blooms to be cut, gently removing them at the base of the bulb, so they maintain their ideal height for filling vases.
