Peony's Envy, a nursery and display garden in Bernardsville, New Jersey suggests prolonging the blooms over time by cutting the buds when they just show color and storing them in water in the fridge for six months! Or to keep for a few weeks, wrap in newsprint and lay in the fridge. They spring to life when put in water.
