Meaning of the name peony

But there is another version that is connected with the ancient Greek myth, which tells about the doctor Peone, who cured Hades (the god of the underworld of the dead) after his battle with Hercules. According to the myth, Asclepius (the god of healing who was the teacher of Peona) envied the amazing gift of his student, so he decided to poison him. But Peon found out about the intentions of his mentor and asked the Greek gods to intercede for him. The gods as a sign of gratitude turned Peona into a flower.
