The moral of lupine is selfless dedication. Lupine is a kind of flower growing under the tea tree. After the plant dies, the flowers and leaves will fall into the soil, fertilize the land under the tea tree, make the tea tree grow more lush, the flowers bloom more brightly, and the tea produced is more fragrant and sweet.
The flower language of lupine is “maternal love, happiness, greedy heart, bitterness, sadness and fantasy”. Hakka people regard it as “Hakka mother flower”, representing ordinary beauty and sadness. There is bitterness in the flower language, because the living environment is bad, and some people say that the seed itself looks very painful.
Since ancient times, Christianity has the habit of connecting saints with specific flowers, because in a few years, saints often decorate the altar with blooming flowers. In the Catholic monasteries in the middle ages, all kinds of flowers were planted like a garden center. Over time, the Church combined 366 flowers with different saints. Every day is a new flower, which forms the so-called flower calendar. Lupin is the flower chosen to sacrifice St. Augustus, the bishop of carltago in the 5th century.
