Those who fall for the charms of the peony are in luck: there are more than a thousand varieties available, in all sorts of shapes and colours.

Among other things, the peony represents love, happiness and health. It is not without reason that the peony is a welcome guest at spring weddings. But it is not only to lovebirds that this flower has a huge appeal. We all like to bring a big bunch of positivity and love into our homes, right?
Here in Europe, we have been enjoying the splendour of peonies since 1784. In China, they were impressed by her even before that. There, the peony was cultivated not only for its flowers, but especially for its roots. Indeed, according to the Chinese, these were said to have a fever-reducing and haemostatic effect. We advise you not to put the peony in your mouth, but mainly to feast your eyes.
