Peony flowers are large and colorful, with a wide variety. Some varieties have complete flower organs, and the bracts, stamens and pistils are normally developed, such as “like lotus” and “Feng Danbai”; however, some males and pistils are petalized or degenerated, forming a variety of beautiful patterns, colorful flower.
According to the level of the petals, the flowers are traditionally divided into single-lobed (layer), double-valve (layer), and thousand-valve (layer). Among the three categories, the morphological characteristics of the flowers are divided into: sunflower type, lotus type, rose type, hemisphere type, crown type, hydrangea type (traditionally referred to as crown type and hydrangea type). type. This classification method more intuitively reflects the various changes in the flower.
The peony experts and scholars together with the scientific research personnel in the production area, combined with the traditional classification method, after years of field observation and anatomical observation of peony flowers, and found out the evolution of flower and flower composition, proposed new patterns. Classification, that is, the peony pattern is divided into single-petal type, lotus type, chrysanthemum type, rose type, thousand-layered cabinet type, tonggui type, golden ring type, crown type, hydrangea type, and floor type.
