The peony, also known as (fu gui rong hua) “flower of riches and honors”, is the national flowers of China. The peony is usually printed on Chinese qipao, not only because of its splendid blooms but also its mysterious connection with the renowned Chinese ancient Beauty Xi Shi. There is a similarity between peony and Xi Shi, that is brave and sympathetic beauty. The peony ranks a unique place in all floras, just like Xi Shi in ancientChina. As a famous poet in Tang Dynasty, Bi Juyi, puts it, only Xi Shi deserves the crown of Beauty, and peony of flora. When a woman wear peony Qipao dress, it always have a feeling of unparalleled sense of beauty.
