This 17.5-inch fake flower will stand stick-straight forever, and though it's made of plastic, it looks uncannily like the real thing!

Duovlo Silk Peony Artificial Bouquet
$10.99

Peonies have such a fleetingly short season, that it's hard to enjoy the real thing without getting stressed out about their longevity! Opt for imitation instead, and you'll never be disappointed. This set of eight fake peonies come in bouquet form, but you can easily snip them off to arrange or craft with them however you'd like! We like displaying a cluster of them in an opaque bubble vase on a coffee table or vanity.
