In Michigan our peony season usually starts around June 1. Sometimes if we have a warm spring we will have flowers in late May, sometimes in time for Memorial Day weekend. Since the peony flower bloom is very dependent on the weather we are taking orders for weddings or other special events that take place during the following dates in June:
1) If you are local in Michigan and can pick up your flowers we are glad to accept your order for weddings starting on June 4, 2016 through June 25.
2) For peonies that need to be shipped a couple of extra days is required for shipping and allowing time for the flowers to open so we are taking orders for wedding dates of June 10 through June 25.
It is very possible that we will have some peonies flowers available earlier and later than these dates but it is impossible to predict. To see our previous years peony bloom dates please see our peony page If you scroll down a few screens you will see the peony bloom dates for about the past ten years.
Peonies flowers need at least 600 hours of below freezing temperatures each winter in order to make nice peony flowers. We are having some brutal freezing cold weather right now so we are expecting some fantastic peonies this year.
If you need flowers for your Michigan wedding this June and are in driving distance of the Ann Arbor area then you are welcome to pick up your peonies and there are no shipping costs. We are located:
- 15 minutes southwest of Ann Arbor
