The genus is supposed to be named after the physician Paeos who cured Pluto and other golds of their wounds received during the Trojan War.
It is used as a medicinal herb in traditional Chinese medicine. The root is used to reduce fever and pain and on wounds to stop bleeding and prevent infection.

The garden was began in 2010. It is a project in conjunction with the CEBI (The Center for Bio-Resources and Innovation). The first of the 9 system of the body gardens is The Respiratory Garden. The garden occuplies 8 hectares and currently has 60 different plants. In 2012, PRFO expect to increase the number to 250.
PRFO (Plant Research Langeland) will also use the garden to grow experimental plantings, for example energy grasses that can be used for heat, and artichokes, whose roots can be used for fuel.
I prefer the words written by Mads Jorgensen:
"There have been planted so many plants and it looks good."
"The garden is built on a slope. There are many fine curved flower beds and paths with castle ruins. But we have a prolbem with the landscaped flower beds and paths merge. This happens especially when it rains heavily. There fore, we have purchased 330 metal band to be up around the flower beds to retain soil. Gardening Group has installed the first. We got us a good surpirse because it looks actually really nice. Metal edges make it that you get to see the subtle curves in the garden.
This is a major task, as have the group can not handle alone. Therefore, we need to come and help us."
