Are Ranunculus and peonies the same?
The ranunculus is similar to peonies, but the main difference between ranunculus and peonies is, the bloom size is a bit smaller and the flower has a flatter shape. The bloom also has a lot of layers, like a peony, but the space between petals is much more clearly defined.

Another great option for peony substitutes is Piano roses. The heads of the blooms are generally smaller than those of peonies but with their rounded buds, they look just like fresh peonies.
Are Ranunculus flowers expensive?
Ranunculus cost can vary widely (like most wedding flowers) by time of year, color, and vendor, but you can expect to pay anywhere between $2-$9/stem.
