Lunar New Year Floral Displays

Those who celebrate the Lunar New Year seem to have gotten it right - after all, wouldn't you rather wake up on the first day of the year surrounded by flowers instead of empty beer cans? Exactly. Stop by the Conservatory of Flowers, where from now until February 8th they are celebrating the new year with a botanical bounty of artfully arranged floral displays, all created for this year of the Ox. You can also attempt your own arrangement at home, which, depending on the flowers used, may bring luck to you in the upcoming months. Here's a list of several commonly used plants and their meanings:

Peach Blossom - Luck

Kumquat - Prosperity

Narcissus - Prosperity

Chrysanthemum - Longevity

Happy New Year!
