Peonies are extra large intricate flowers that are a unique combination of size and soft texture, and as a result they have a look like no other. Their singular appearance makes peonies one of the most popular spring flowers. Peonies can be arranged alone or mixed with roses and other flowers for soft, pretty looks that are memorably beautiful. Classic uses for peonies range from spring luncheon flowers to business events and bridal showers. Also when sending `I love you` flowers during April, May and June, peonies can be a replacement for roses in an unexpected and surprising floral substitution. When you ask many younger people to name their favorite flower, peonies are very often the answer!
