Herbaceous peony is often used to represent a very beautiful love. In ancient times, when men and women loved each other, they often gave peony to each other. Through peony to express the other half of the farewell and love. So herbaceous peony is also known as "farewell grass". It is a kind of plant that men and women give each other when they are going to leave. Traffic and communication in ancient times are not very convenient. A couple miss each other very much when they are far away from mountains and rivers. They will place their yearning on peony.


Valentine's Day is a Western festival. Roses are the most commonly used flowers for girls. But for the flower of love in Chinese tradition, it is peony. Herbaceous peony is much milder than roses with thorns. It can show and set off the unique graceful and gentle temperament of Chinese women. Herbaceous peony has many colors, among which pink is the most popular among young people. The tender pink color, like a shy girl in love, expresses a kind of subtle and coy mood. It is like an innocent and romantic girl who is at the beginning of a love affair. People can't help but feel heartbeat for it.

Whether holding it in the hands of the bride or throwing it out at last, being snatched by lucky people is a beautiful blessing for each other's love. We often see peony basket in wedding venues, which symbolizes loyalty to love.
