BEIJING CHINA. Peonies always take center-stage in a well-planned garden. "The “king of flowers” by the Chinese, introduced as ornamental flowers into the imperial gardens as far back as the Sui dynasty. In the Tang dynasty, peonies became so fashionable that they would enchant the entire capital city during the flowering season. In the Qing dynasty, the peony’s status was elevated as the “national flower” and is associated with felicity, happiness, honor, and fortune.
