Prunus blossoms were and are highly prized in Chinese culture. The ancient Chinese believed the peach to possess more vitality than any other tree because their blossoms appear before leaves sprout. When early rulers of China visited their territories, they were preceded by sorcerers armed with peach rods to protect them from spectral evils.

On New Year's Eve, local magistrates would cut peach wood branches and place them over their doors to protect against evil influences.
