Seattle-Luoyang Peony Festival


ERIKA SCHULTZ / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Catherine Arnold walks through the Seattle Chinese Garden's Seattle-Luoyang Peony Festival May 4, 2014. The two-day festival brought hundreds of people to see the garden's 400 peony plants, which were planted in the display garden over the last year. The plants were given as a gift from Luoyang, China, which is well known for their peonies within the country. Bob Seely, garden manager, said the plant symbolizes wealth and abundance. "It's a very loved and auspicious flower in China," said Seely.
