Peony and its myth. The story of the most beloved flower in the world

Peony is a rich and delicate flower with a unique aroma that has captured the hearts of people since ancient times.

Peony bouquets are a great choice for any occasion, from a wedding to an anniversary or Mother's Day. More than its beauty, the peony impresses with its rich mythological history. Here's the story of the world's most beloved flower!

In ancient Greek mythology, peony (in English Peony) got its name from Peon, the doctor of the gods, known for his ability to heal anyone. One day, Paeon used peony root to heal the god Pluto, who was injured after a battle. Since then, peony has been considered by the gods as a medicinal plant associated with healing.

Also in ancient Greece, the peony was believed to have the ability to ward off evil spirits and was planted in people's yards to protect them.

On the other hand, in Chinese culture there is a legend that the peony was a beautiful woman to whom the emperor was attracted. Despite her importance, the girl refused the emperor's advances. To protect her from the emperor's unwanted attention, the gods turned her into a magnificent flower. Thus, the peony has become a symbol of beauty and romance, believed to bring good luck and prosperity.

The popularity of peony is based not only on its mythology. The flower itself is a real miracle of nature. Peonies come in a variety of colors, including pink, red, white and yellow, and come in a variety of sizes, from small, delicate blooms to large, rich blooms. One of the things that makes peony so special is its scent. Peonies have a sweet, delicate aroma that is instantly recognizable and incredibly attractive.
