A bouquet of beauty in Florida Humidity

I love peonies. Just head over heels in love. They are beautiful, big blooms and soft and sweet. They can survive hard winters and make amazing bouquets.

Sadly, I live in Florida and we don’t have cold enough winters to keep peonies thriving. So what’s a girl to do?

We plant Ranunculus instead! Deemed the Southern Peonies, they can survive in colder winters, but thrive in the mild winters and spring. Just as pretty and feminine as peonies, just more suitable to Florida’s climate.

Hydrangeas will make an appearance along side my azaleas and Ranunculus. I can’t wait to get planting! Now if these thunderstorms would move on out, I can sweat my booty off while gardening!
