Peonies are loved for their elegance, ornate delicate petals and sweet-scented fragrance. All flowers and plants hold different symbolic meanings; the symbolisms associated with the peony are luck, prosperity, love, and good fortune.
In China peonies are known as the “queen of flowers” or “king of flowers” because before the plum tree, peonies were considered as the country’s national flower. The peony is also the state flower of Indiana, and the flower to be given on a 12th wedding anniversary. This lush perennial blossoms between late spring and early summer and, if cared for properly, can continue blooming for nearly 100 years.
In the language of flowers, one symbolism of pink flowers is happiness. “Oh Happy Days” plays on the rich symbolism of the peony along with the color pink. Luck and good fortune definitely bring about happy days.
