According to Greek mythology, the Peony is a plant of healing. In fact, the flower was named after the gods' physician, Paeon. Historically, Peonies' seeds, bark, roots, and flowers have been used to support women's health and healing. The Peony's short blooming period further symbolizes the power, beauty, and fleeting nature of life. The Peony was Georgia's favorite flower.
As a community, we represent Peony seeds, which contain all the ingredients for a blossoming future, the roots, which ground and nourish, the stem, holding our heads high in rain or shine, the petal, bud, and blossom, expressing life and beauty to the fullest, and the Peony Garden, which represents The Peony Project's vision for hope, health, and education.
