US (AK): Vase life studies in peonies

HortAlaska Peonies posted a copy of a poster completed by a floriculture professor and students a few years ago. They have received a lot of interest in handling practices after flowers are cut.

This experiment was designed to help understand best practices. The biggest factor is cold storage. A huge challenge for growers is maintaining consistent and cold temperatures after cutting. Fluctuations even from people walking in and out of the cooler can cause moisture condensation on the flowers, Botrytis growth, and a shorter vase life.
