If you had to award the title of luscious to one flower, wouldn’t you say, peony! Peonies are blessed with abundant petals and hues that range from palest pink to deep rich burgundy. The papery white peony is a favorite with many brides. There are also garden roses, with greater availability that rival the peony. However, for some people, it is the motherlode of flowers!
In this bouquet, I enjoyed the luxurious effect of combining peonies with a variety of roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, foxgloves, goldstrike leucadendra and to top it off, some showy blooms of clematis Henryi from my garden. It’s exciting to have the rare opportunity to nip a few favourites and foliage from my garden.
