The owner of the unique flower fence is Mr. Truong Van An, who lives in Vam hamlet, Dong Hung B commune, An Minh district, the southern province of Kien Giang.

According to An, he started growing the peony fence some 18 years ago. However, as it’s not easy at first as there were no enough seedlings to sow around his house. He then had to ask around for branches of peony and pin them into the ground, waiting for the flower to sprout.

“The success rate was not very high, thus I had to patiently wait years to grow enough peony for the fence”, Mr. An was quoted by Thanh Nien.

The peony fence enveloping the house stretches for 30m in length, 70cm in height and 560cm in width. An attentively tends the flowers and often let them bloom twice a year.

Given the special terrain, it’s not easy to grow flowers and ornamental plants, let alone making such an eye-catching fence neatly-trimmed every day and looks gorgeous when in bloom. Mr. An said that many people had tried to recreate his flower fence but couldn’t as the process required a lot of patience and finesses.
