Firstly, introduce the Chinese New Year Flower, is a kind of new year flower. Chinese New Year Flower originally had a story. First of all, it can be traced back to the Qing Dynasty. Guangzhou residents often use the Chinese New Year Flower as their annual flower. In fact, the Chinese New Year Flower is really beautiful, but it never sold in Hong Kong. It turned out that as early as a hundred years ago, the Chinese New Year Flower Tree was felled very seriously. The British Hong Kong government enacted a law in 1913 to prohibit the possession and sale of Chinese New Year Flower. This law was later incorporated into the Forestry Regulations in 1937 to prevent illegal picking of wild Chinese New Year Flower Tree. In the 1960s, the public felt that the homonym of the Chinese New Year Flower was unlucky, and gradually replaced it with peach blossoms as the new year flower, taking the auspicious sign of 'Flowers Blooming and Wealth'. Since then, wild Chinese New Year Flower has been preserved in the countryside.
