무궁화 Mugunghwa, The National Flower of Korea

Every year around July to October, you will see the blooming of Mugunghwa 무궁화. Mugunghwa or The Rose of Sharon or Hibiscus syriacus is the national flower of Korea. Mugung means immortality reflects the enduring nature of Korean culture along with the determination and perseverance of the Korean people.
This flower characteristic is simple but the strongest flower, Mugunghwa can bloom and fresh within 100 days.

I remember of the lyrics of South Korea anthem 애국가 Aegukga is
무궁화 삼천리 화려강산
대한 사람 대한으로 길이 보전하세
Means :
Mugunghwa, over three thousand miles, O beautiful land, People of Korea, ever may preserve her.
