Can peonies be dryed & still hold the blossoms in place & color?

I haven't seen dried peonies and I think they would be somewhat difficult because of the intricate petal structure and the amount of moisture they would contain. But it doesn't hurt to try! I suggest using a silica gel, as that usually helps retain color better than other methods. Good luck!
