The flower language of Plumeria is resurrection, rebirth and hope. It has no noble posture of other flowers, nor elegant temperament. It is just a fresh flower composed of five petals. It has a simple appearance and light fragrance. When other flowers compete for beauty, it just blooms silently to show its ordinary charm.
In the tropical tourist resort of Hawaii, people like to string Plumeria into a wreath for distinguished guests, or wear it on their chest as a holiday ornament, which is the symbol of Hawaii; In Laos, Plumeria is honored as the national flower; In Thailand, girls like to put Plumeria in their hair; In Cote d’Ivoire, a small African country formerly colonized by France, five toothless safflower Plumeria stamps were issued in 1962.
In Xishuangbanna, where all people believe in southern Theravada Buddhism, Plumeria is designated as one of the “five trees and six flowers” by Buddhist temples in Hainan, China. Because Plumeria has no stamens, “no flower heart” is called a good man flower.
