The most important floral symbol of good luck for CNY. Unlike ordinary bamboo stems, you can buy Lucky Bamboo in fancy twisted shapes — curls, spirals, figure eights at the Chinese New Year flower market. It is believed that this plant brings great luck throughout the coming lunar year.
In compositions, bamboo is complemented by red, orange, and yellow flowers. They can be red peonies, yellow-orange orchids, and other bright flowers. Bamboo is also decorated with red and orange tassels, gold coins, and beads — everything that emphasizes the symbolism of this plant and enhances it.
