Vase Life of Peonies

IN 2013, 14, and 16 I examined the vase life of 69 different cultivars of peonies to see which ones would last 7 days or more in a vase. There were winners and losers, and I was especially interested in which were consistent from year to year. The zero category was mostly ITOH hybrids (starred). The greatest category had 1 of 3 years at the 7 day average vase life. There were only 6 cultivars that were consistent for 3 years. Those 6 may or may not have other attributes that make them lousy cut flowers (short stems, poor yield), but at least in this category they are stars!
