Zinnia, Youth-and-Old-Age, Zinnia violacea, Crassina elegans
Zinnia is a Mexican wildflower and widely distributed in the Philippines. It belongs to the Daisy family and there are more than 200 species---Zinnia elegans is the most well-known. The early Spanish colonists in Mexico found the flowers ugly and called them "mal de ojos" (evil eyes).
Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
