The common names of this beautiful flower are: plant of
healing, happy life and prosperity. In bloom, the peony
is a large abundant and very beautiful flower, inviting butter-
flies to gardens, thus attracting more life to them.
Peonies can live for over hundred years if undisturbed. With
their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody prosperity
and are regarded as an omen of good fortune. In eight
century China, the peony was considered the King of
Flowers, symbolizing abundance.
The Peony flower is named after the most ancient Greek
god of healing, Paeon, who was known as the "physician
of the gods". Paeon was a student of Asclepius, the god
of medicine and healing. It was said he angered his teacher
Asclepius, and when Asclepius threatened to kill Paeon
out of jealousy, Zeus saved him by changing him into the
lovely flower we know today as the peony.
The ancient Chinese discovered that the peony's bark, roots,
seeds and flowers served as medicine. The root of this plant
is frequently utilized in traditional Chinese medicine and is
often prescribed for gynaecological conditions.
