Over the years, it has become a tradition to welcome the Lunar New Year with auspicious plants & flowers. They are cultivated not just for their beauty, but because their fruits or flowers may have a symbolic meaning.
During festive season, the Chinese often use the saying 花开富贵 (huakai fugui), which means a blooming plant brings prosperity and happiness. Thus, many families will welcome the new year with plants in the hopes of having a good start to the year ahead.
Plants, especially flowers, with bright colours like red, green and yellow are preferred, while dark or white-coloured plants, or plants with stunted growth, sharp or drooping appearance are avoided because these are usually associated with grief and pain.
