According to a folk tale, orchid tree’s flowers used to be white only. At that time, Mai - the daughter of famous Lang Cum declined her noble title to get married to a poor man and follow the Hoang army to fight the enemy. When they were defeated in Manh Thien, Mai and her husband committed suicide under an old orchid tree. Their blood made the flowers of that tree turn to red in the Spring. The wind blew and spread the stamens across the region and they became the purple pink orchid tree’s flowers today. Photo: Thanh Duy
