Perfect for flower fans, this little love letter to the peony is bursting with tips, tricks and facts. Peonies are queens of the spring garden, a romantic flower long popular in bridal bouquets (symbolizing prosperity and a happy marriage). In bloom for only a few weeks, they have passionate fans who love them despite-or perhaps because of-their short season. They can live to be 100 years, and are one of the easiest flowers to grow, with many different shapes and colors available, and a delicate scent. This charming little hardcover book includes 60+ full-color botanical illustrations, basic botany and history, everything you need to know to grow gorgeous blooms in the garden, tips for creating beautiful arrangements and preserving flowers, plus quotes, lore, and notable gardens and growers. Like a bouquet of peonies, this book is an affordable little luxury for gardeners and flower lovers –the perfect hostess gift or mother’s day present.
