My friend Audrey Campigotto, the floral designer at Winston Flowers in Greenwich, sent me these lovely photos over the course of a week to show how Coral Charm peonies fade over time, ultimately becoming nearly white. I think every stage is equally beautiful. The above picture shows the deepest coral color on the first day's tightly closed blooms. Below is one day later - still quite dark, and just beginning to open. Then a day after that... Followed by another day... The next day...The sixth day.And after one week, almost pure white, the last remaining blossom in the shop adorns Audrey's desk.
