With the Chinese New Year (CNY) fast approaching, streets and shops are filled to the brim with auspicious seasonal plants to usher in the Lunar Year of the Golden Rabbit. Most Chinese love to have live blooming plants to welcome the refreshing New Year and new growth.
Some of the popular plants would be pussy willows, cherry blossoms, lime plants, bamboo shoots and money trees.
A combination of plum and peonies blossoms symbolize good luck and good fortune
Lucky bamboos symbolize harmony and prosperity. They create positive energy and good balance to any room.
I'm not sure how true this is but it is believed that twisted bamboos will make a person’s luck changed from bad to a good one.
lime plants symbolize the arrival of good fortune and prosperity. These plants are usually displayed at the front door entrance to a Chinese home or office building.
Pussy willows are thought to symbolize goodwill and motherhood. They are also considered to represent protection for the home. We took these flowers while on one of our walks in Salzburg last year.
