Withered-Branch Peony Park

Yancheng Withered-Branch Peony Park is located in a 2000-year-old town named Biancang in the south of the downtown of Yancheng. Each year, this kind of peony blooms extensively and attractively. At this time, there are many tourists come here. According to the historical record, the withered-branch peony was originally produced in Luoyang, and in late North Song Dynasty, Bian Jizhi, from Suzhou once acted as the clean-handed official in Shaanxi. After the perdition of Song dynasty, he retreated in southern China for avoiding the war. Later they removed to this town of Yancheng and he also carried two peony trees and planted in this garden.

In fact, there are hundreds of peonies in the world, but why is the peony in this place called withered-branch peony? The reason is that the peony here is beautiful and elegant. The stems and branches could be the inflammable firewood like the deadwood whenever they are disjointed from the trees. Generally the peony is the spring flower, but the deadwood peony can flower two or three times in a year, and it flowers once more in autumn or winter when there are no leaves on the branches but the flowers, so it is called the deadwood peony.
