FLOWER WARS: The Peony vs. the Hydrangea: Which Do You Love Most?
THE PEONY, classically extravagant with its billowy soft angelic petals and sweet scent, kicks off the summer season and lasts for an average of 10 days or so. It comes in a variety of colors, from white with beautiful pink insets to dark red, with an infinite variety of shades in between.
THE HYDRANGEA signals the height of summer, and evokes sunny days by the seacoast, particularly in the classic blue tones. Did you know that the color of the flowers is determined by the acidity of the soil? Longer lasting than peonies, some holding their shape and color well into the fall, and even appealing dried, colors range from blues to white, purple, and pinks, and they always create a captivating display.
