All About Peonies

All About Peonies

Botanically known as Paeonoia, peonies are native to Asia, Europe and Western North America. Their history goes back to ancient days where they once were China’s national flower and bred in its imperial courts. The flower’s popularity spread to Japan then eventually France and England. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, they began taking off in the United States.
