Peonies are a flowering plant in the family Paeoniaceae. They are native to Asia, Western North America, and Europe. Although scientists disagree about the exact number of species they have, it is generally believed that there are at least 33 species. There are many varieties that can be used in vase and garden arrangements. The name “peony” derives from the Greek word for “peony-like,” meaning “to grow and bloom beautifully.”
Peonies bloom for seven to 10 days, and do not all flower at the same time. These flowers can be classified according to their blooming time, which can range from Very Early to Very Later. Peonies can last up to six weeks depending on the variety. You can even grow a few hybrids if you have the patience and time. It is easy to find a cultivar which will flower in your area, regardless of whether it is pink or white. It’s worth trying several varieties.
Paeonia is also known by the Itoh Peony. Toichi Itoh, a famous Greek doctor, first crossed the herbaceous Peony with the tree. The result is the ‘Itoh Peony,’ which is known for its huge blooms and lush leaves. This plant was difficult to grow in the past and was extremely expensive. In recent years, monrovia is a well-respected source for the Itoh peony.
The history of the peony is long and distinguished. The name derives from a Greek healer named Paeon. He was the student of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine. Paeon used the peony to treat Zeus’s wound, but Asclepius was jealous, so Zeus turned him into a peony flower. These flowers are prized for their beauty and their ability to grow.
