Good Questions: Alternatives to Real Peonies?

Hi, I absolutely adore peonies and would fill my house year round if they were available. I never seem to find any decent looking silk peonies — they are all terrible looking. Does anyone have a suggestion of where one can actually find an artificial peonies that might pass for the real thing?? Thanks!

Personally, I think fake flowers look better when they are obviously fake — often their attempts to look real are what give them away. Check out these fake flower posts on Apartment Therapy:

Does anyone have ideas for faux peonies?
