Peony Garden 東公園(ぼたん園)


Peony flower is literally known as Chinese symbol flower as well as the king of flowers. There are many famous poems and paintings about Peony in China. In japan, the flower is called "Botan" (ぼたん). I have never seen it before until recently. Early May to middle here is the Peony season. This year I could find some time and went to the garden. It was very beautiful and impressive. There are 120 kinds of Peony and about 5000 plants. The flower is so big, very sweet fragrant, and very similar to rose fragrant.
