Trader Joe’s is our hub for many summer staples, from fruity, boozy beverages to flavorful condiments that go with everything we’re grilling this season. But one of our favorite Trader Joes’ summer essentials isn’t even food at all—it’s their peonies!
If you’ve ever stepped in to Trader Joe’s, you’ve noticed their stunning array of flowers, but their peonies take the cake. The flowers just arrived in stores this week and apparently will only be around for a “very, very, very(!) limited time.”
A five-stem bunch of these gorgeous blooms will only set you back $7.99 at Trader Joe’s, which is likely the best deal in town, as some can cost more than $10. Plus, they are available in a wide variety of hues—white, purple, red and pink!
The lovely folks at Trader Joe’s advise giving your peony stems a fresh cut at a 45-degree angle before placing them in water—and changing the water every other day. They also advise displaying your perfect peonies in a cool location—out of direct sunlight.
They’ll make a perfect centerpiece for a summer dinner, whether you’re hosting friends or just feeding the family. And they’re a great way to brighten a room!
