Expect cut peonies to last for about a week indoors. Snip the stems when the buds are tight. The flowers will keep for a short time, if you want to arrange them later, if wrapped in newspaper. Close the newspaper with rubber bands on each end, and store the peonies on their sides in the refrigerator.
