Playing with Peonies: Coral Charm Peony

One of the most popular flowers for brides, the Coral Charm Peony infuses a mix of pretty and bold. When used in bouquets, completely opened buds can offer a soft fluffy texture, however if used in bullet form can help emphasise the intense colour of the flower, within an arrangement.
