Display peonies. Once hard to find, peonies are much more common in flower markets and florists than they once were. The peonies are the queen flower of romance in China and in feng shui. If your love life has ground to a halt, purchase red and pink peonies for the Chinese New Year. The red is highly regarded as a good fortune color (as well as passion!) and the pink is regarded as the romantic and tender kind of love.
