When the flowers are a few weeks old, the buds of the plant are still alive and growing.
The flower itself is not yet a full flower, and the bud remains alive and ready to be harvested.
The buds are the first thing to die, but the buds can also be killed off by the fungus (the stem of the flower is also called the staminate) which causes the buds to fall off.
The flower can be harvested by the bud of the new-born plant.
The buds can then be crushed into small pieces and used to make a tea.
This flower has become a popular holiday item for families.
