The abundant peony is a harbinger of summer. The peony is a real farm flower and is often found in farm gardens. She comes from China and was not only grown for their beauty but most of all for the fever-reducing and haemostatic effect of the roots. The botanical name Paeonia comes from the Greek word Paion: physician of the Greek gods. The peony in your home is only suitable to put in a vase and not for medicinal use.
