Mugunghwa (무궁화) (Hibiscus syriacus) is the national flower of South Korea.
The mugunghwa first became the national flower of Korea during the Japanese colonial era (1910-1945) when it was overwhelmingly selected by the people as the floral symbol of their nation.
Many Koreans attempted to counter colonial Japan's racial assimilation policy by planting mugunghwa nationwide symbolizing independence for Korea. The mugunghwa which regularly returns a day after seemingly having faded away became a symbol of a desire for a Korea independent of Japan.
The actual term mugunghwa was first employed during the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). During the Goryeo Dynasty and Joseon Dynasty eras (1392-1910), it was common practice for kings to reward those who successfully passed the civil service examinations with paper made mugunghwa.

I always pick up such lost flowers and give them a second chance, by putting them on a plat dish or a glass and usually it reward me with more than one week of beauty!
