Coral Charm

Coral Charm Peony by Georgianna Lane

The coral peonies are among the most beautiful and dramatic, especially when used in arrangements or bouquets. Even a single bloom can make quite a statement!

Coral Charm Peonies at North Field Farm by Georgianna Lane

The corals are big, showy flowers that have multiple petals, open beautifully and fade gracefully into pale pink and ivory. Here are ‘Pink Hawaiian Coral’ peonies growing at North Field Farm in Ferndale, Washington. The owner, Geraldine, generously provided most of the blooms for this post.

The shades of coral stand out from the usual pinks and whites of many peonies.

I couldn’t resist these purple anemones. They add a punch of vibrance to the overhead arrangements.

Coral Charm peonies in Paris by Georgianna Lane

These ‘Coral Charm’ peonies were photographed at the Rungis wholesale flower market outside of Paris. It’s a massive market that I was fortunate to visit last spring.

Peonies, ranunculus, anemones, petals from Snowball Viburnum and little heart leaves of viola growing wild on our property. 

Peony season is so fleeting and bidding them farewell for another year is difficult. But they make way for a summer of roses and other beauty to come!

Happy weekend, my friends!

Love,

G

  • Oh Georgianna, these are all so stunning! Sometimes I can’t even put into words how much I love flowers. I look at these and think about how I’d love have a flower farm so I’d have endless blooms to photograph!

    These are really extraordinary! You have such a talent for arranging flowers as well. True, peony season passes by too quickly, but luckily these images are forever.

  • What exquisite flowers! The coral against the soft blue is so appealing and reminds me of the colour I once had in my living room. I still miss it. Beautiful images and thank for sharing with us.

    Blessings,

  • I was thinking about spring and gardens filled with peonies, poppies, and ranunculus, so I google image-searched and your post popped up. These photos and flowers are gorgeous, so I just wanted to say thank you for making my Monday a little happier!

    Hi, Georgianna. I was looking for some inspiration photos for an event I have coming up using peonies. Then I saw your peonies were from Geraldine! She provided the peonies for my wedding a few years ago, now I have become a loyal client. Isn’t she just the sweetest? Wondering what the variegated greenery in the photos is, the one that is in the arrangement with the poppies. Thanks!

Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I value my relationship with each of you and do my best to respond, although with travel and location work it might take me a little while.
