As the old saying “the peony of Luoyang is the most beautiful under heaven”, it attracts thousands of tourists every April.
Since the Tang Dynasty, Luoyang is famous for the peony, as the queen of flowers with ethereal color and celestial fragrance. Of the 500,000 peony shrubs in 350-odd strains that are cultivated in Luoyang, the yaohuang (Yaos yellow peony) and weizi (Weis purple peony) are the "king” and "queen” of all peonies. The first Luoyang Peony Festival took place on April 15-25 in 1983; since then it has become a major annual event.
There are many full-length variety shows, flower watching, lantern show, exhibitions of traditional Chinese calligraphy and painting and photography, symposiums, and business talks. Banquets are arranged for peony admirers, and all kinds of snacks and refreshments are served as well.
