General Information



The peony is named after Paeon (also spelled Paean), a student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil; Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.

Mischievous nymphs were said to hide in the petals of the Peony thus causing this magnificent flower to be given the meaning of Shame or Bashfulness in the Language of Flowers. It was named after Paeon, a physician to the gods, who obtained the plant on Mount Olympus from the mother of Apollo.
The peony is among the longest-used flowers in ornamental culture in China.
The peony is the state flower of Indiana.
Peonies tend to attract ants to the flower buds. This is due to the nectar that forms on the outside of the flower buds. Strangely, this nectar is not required for the plants pollination or other known reason.
