The name Perfect Peony is derived from an adoration of this beautiful, luxurious flower whilst noting it’s symbolic significance. Peonies have a long standing association with romance and prosperity dating back to Ancient Greek times. They are said to symbolise a happy marriage and good fortune due to the roundness and generosity of their blossoms, making them a popular choice as a wedding flower. Peonies are often described as being perfect and that is exactly what your occasion will be!
