    Flower names after leaders of North Korea, “Kim Il-sung” and his son “Kim Jong-il”. Kim Il-sung saw the then unamed flower 1 in a botanical garden in Indonesia, the flower was later named after him. Flower 2 was artificially cultivated to commemorate Kim Jong-il’s 46th birthday by a Japanese botanist.
