Heavenly Scented Rose Peony Pink Is Only for the Pros

If there was such a thing as beginner, intermediate, and expert levels of working with garden roses then the Rose Peony Pink would definitely fall into the last category. This high-risk, high-reward rose that looks more like a peony than anything else can probably be classified as one of the most beautiful scented roses in the world.

In essence, and going by all its perfect qualities, Rose Peony Pink is frankly a rose like no other. With a perfect peony-shaped flower and a very delicate light pink color, this flower is, perhaps,  the most romantic fruit-scented bloom around. The exquisite pink rose looks fantastic on its own, in a beautiful bouquet, or mixed with other flowers.

The Rose Peony Pink Is a Perfect Substitute for Peonies

The small, baby pink heads of the Rose Peony Pink bloom into magnificent roses with many layers of cupped petals. And then that scent! A real English rose myrrh fragrance with hints of lemon and almond make up for a romantic, fruity scent. This is one of those roses that you can smell throughout the house for days.

If you're looking for a peony but these peonies are out of season, Rose Peony Pink comes in handy as a perfect replacement. It comes in a very light pink hue, similar to one of the popular peonies 'Sarah Bernhardt', and with a delightful scent to top it. In fact, it is one of the best, scented roses.

The Rose Was Already Introduced in 1987

Rose Peony Pink has been around since 1987 but it would take a long time before it became popular among florists.

Garden roses weren't very popular in floristry at that time because of the cost and the generally shorter vase life of garden roses compared to regular roses. But trends are changing and this rose is much more popular now than it was during those earlier years. 

Rose Peony Pink Is Not for the Garden Rose ‘Beginner'

Garden roses can be pretty difficult to transport. They generally travel with their blooms already slightly open, making them more fragile than standard-cut rose varieties, which can be transported as tight buds.

Garden roses also take longer to cool down before they can be shipped out and require additional, and even sometimes special, packing techniques to ensure safe arrival. All of this adds to the price that you eventually pay per stem at a wholesaler or flower shop.

Creating Stunning Floral Arrangements With Rose Peony Pink

Rose Peony Pink can be used in various ways to enhance living spaces or create stunning floral arrangements for different occasions. One can create a gorgeous bouquet by combining these roses with other complementary flowers. To achieve this, choose different varieties of pink and white flowers to add depth and texture to the arrangement. You can also add some greenery, such as eucalyptus or ferns, for an extra touch of elegance.

These roses can also be used as the focal point of table centerpieces. They can be placed in a vase or a decorative container and surrounded with candles, smaller flowers, or foliage. This will create an eye-catching display for weddings, parties, or even everyday home decor.

With these roses, one can also make a charming floral wreath. Attach the roses to a wire or foam wreath base and complement them with greenery or other small flowers. Then hang the wreath on your front door, above the fireplace, or as a decorative piece on a wall.

Rose Peony Pink can also be used to create stunning flower crowns for special occasions like weddings, festivals, or photo shoots. In this case, use floral wire or a flexible base, such as a vine or ribbon, and attach the roses by their stems. Then add some smaller flowers or foliage to create a lush and whimsical crown.

For home décor, one can place these dainty roses in a vase or a decorative jar to add delicate beauty to any room. Then display them on a coffee table, mantel, or bedside table.

You can also enhance your gifts by adding Rose Peony Pink roses as decorative accents. Just attach a single rose or a small cluster of roses to gift boxes, gift bags, or even ribbon bows to add a touch of elegance and make your gift stand out.

The Key to Getting the Best Out of This Rose

Because of its generally thin stems and heavy flower heads, Rose Peony Pink is extra hard to ship. The key to getting the best out of this rose lies in two things: cutting stage and hydration. Garden roses have to be cut at the perfect time; if the buds are too closed they won't open and if they are too open they are extra susceptible to damage and will only bloom for a few days.

These types of roses usually require 24 hours of rehydrating before they are ready to use and the same applies to Rose Peony Pink. In the pictures below you can see what they look like upon arrival and what happens after giving them a good, long drink.

Rose Peony Pink is extra sensitive because of its fragile nature so it's important to let it regain some of its 'strength' - preferably with the protective packaging still wrapped around it - before you start working with it.

Do these things right and you have yourself a scented rose that is truly like no other. With many layers of baby pink petals and a heavenly scent people will keep trying to sniff, Peony Pink is sure to captivate many.
