 @julies1949 You are right. They have different kind of heads depending on their kind. 


Their shades are tricky too. They are never the same and they really depend on the season. 

Usually they can get as pale as white and as deep as darker burgundy. Blush and hot pink are the most common.

I’ve heard from some to be careful about wholesale peonies because ants swarming peony buds are pretty common (just be aware of this before you make the bouquets). In regards to colors, I second MissMaine’s post – that seems to be the general color scheme I’ve seen too (a range of reds, pinks and oranges along with white). Good luck!

The ones on the sites you linked are the varieties that are most often cultivated for cut flowers. That’s the shape they usually come in, with each colour variety having its own unique shape.

If you’re thinking of peonies as being more of a round ball, and less of a ruffle of petals, you’re probably used to seeing them earlier, before they’ve opened as much.

There are hundreds of peony varieties, but they’re more for gardeners, and you’ll rarely see them as cut flowers.

If you want some colour variety in your bouquet, you might try mixing peonies with garden roses.
