Identifying the peony!

peony_princessPR7September 13, 2013

I recently got married and order my bouquet to be white peonies only. I fell in love with them! Since the florist that ordered them had more, I bought more after coming from my honeymoon but in pink. Where I live the peony is a rare flower so it's very expensive. There are no more left and mine are already open so I know they won't last long. I want to have more but can't order them from the florist. Was thinking of planting my own. But I want the same ones I had for my wedding and after. The problem is a lot of peonies look alike. Can you help me identify them?
Also, I live in Puerto Rico. I don't know if peonies can live here. When it's not super sunny, it's rainning. But most of the time is hot outside. Please help! I don't want to wait till next year or to have $300 to buy a box of cut peonies which won't last long. I know they won't bloom right away but knowing I have them is enough.

Your peonies are very beautiful. But the bad news is you probably cannot grow peonies in Puerto RIco because peonies need cold temps in order to form buds. There is a requirement of a minimum # of hours of freezing for the peonies to bloom. You can grow roses in place of peonies!
