Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew any florists [online] that have peonies available in February [next year], for centerpieces and decoration, mainly. They would have to be shipped to NOVA [Northern Virginia], and I really cannot have them being overly expensive.

Oh goodness, I’m sorry, I’m of no help for websites—but I will tell you, no matter where you go you might be out of luck that time of year. Peonies aren’t in season until about mid-late May through early-mid June and that’s it. So those would be out of season and either not an option or extremely expensive. I know they aren’t the same, and I don’t know about their seasonly time, but there is a rose that looks very much like peonies…I think they care called garden roses??? They are very popular for weddings when peonies can’t be used. Also, ranuculous is used by a lot of brides instead of peonies when they aren’t in season. Hope this helps! I love peonies too!!! 😀

What CurlySue said. You could MAYBE find them, but they’re going to be SUPER expensive that time of the year.
BTW, do you know that both pictures you posted aren’t peonies? They’re garden roses.

yeah it’s not going to happen.
You can’t even get them in august unless you have some amazing contacts but my distributor couldn’t get them and they are the biggest one in Michigan.
but on a bright side you did not post photos of peonies.
Both of them are garden roses. 😉
Garden roses are easier to get all year round, but they are not cheap either.
