In VN, especially in the cetre of VN, Mai Vàng (yellow pental flowers) is the popular tree. and they are planted everywhere for decorative. some special and beautiful of them are used for making bonsai. They are no longer a wild tree. Mai is considered a thing that bring to their boss lucky and happily. So people always hope they will strong and bloomy in the first day of year. In VN, the most popular type of Mai is Mai Vàng Nam Cánh (five-yellow-petals flowers).
