Flower with a story
The peony has a rich history. People have enjoyed the flower’s sunny radiance for centuries. For instance, the peony has been enriching the lives of Europeans since 1784. Before this, people in China already used the flower’s roots to lower fever and to stop bleeding. The flower’s name seems also to be based on the medical effects of its roots. The Latin name Paeonia is derived from Paieon, the Greek god of healing.
