The wait is over – the most beloved bloom has returned! Flowwow reveals the world’s largest collection of peony bouquets.

It’s officially the most wonderful time of the floral year. Peony season has arrived or as the gifting experts at Flowwow have coined it, Peonymania Movement. Fans of the fluffy bloom will be overjoyed as the online marketplace presents the world’s biggest collection of peony bouquets – with more floral sellers participating than ever before. Merchants from around the world will be incorporating the hero bloom into their breathtaking designs – good news for peony enthusiasts everywhere.

Onin.London recently received a bouquet and we loved them! There’s a reason why these gorgeous Peonies continue their reign as the must-have stem of early summer – Flowwow has seen the demand for the flower grow exponentially, selling more than double the number of bouquets year on year (from 7000 units in 2022 to 15000 units 2023) and expects to double this figure again for 2024.

Over 1700 flower shops across 13 countries will participate in Peonymania Movement – crafting an array of bouquets featuring the coveted stem.
With so many talented floral artisans taking part worldwide, there is a design to suit every taste. Did you know, that the flamboyant Coral Charm peony begins life in a wonderfully vivid flamingo pink and over time transforms into a peach hue? Then there’s the timeless elegance of the crisp white Duchesse de Nemours variety. And it’s not just the floral vendors getting involved – ingenious bakers are offering edible delights inspired by the puff-ball stem.

Intensifying the peony hysteria is their relatively short season, often lasting just a few months in the UK. With such a short window to enjoy these perfect petals, it’s all the more reason to make the most of them while they’re here. Here’s a round-up of expert care tips to make your beautiful bunch last as long as possible:

1 Preparation – begin by carefully trimming the stems at a 45-degree angle. This will ensure maximum water absorption. Secondly, it’s important to remove any leaves that will fall below the water line in the vase – if the foliage is left on the stem this risks bacteria build-up.

2 Vessel – glass vases are great as it’s easy to spot when the water needs refreshing (usually every 2-3 days). Fill with cool, fresh water and arrange stems.
3 Placement – of course, you’ll want to enjoy your fluffy peonies in all their glory, but to avoid them blooming too quickly, avoid very warm rooms and hot windowsills. Somewhere cool but bright is ideal.
