Galsang flower

What exactly it is is widely debated. In the Tibetan language, “gesang” means “good time” or “happiness”, and “meidao” means “flower”, so Galsang flower is also called “happy flower”, which has long been the embodiment of the happy feelings of the Tibetan people looking forward to happiness and auspiciousness.


Many people believe that Coreopsis is a Galsang flower, and this flower has another name in Tibetan areas, called “zhang dao-hua”. Because this flower is the late qing minister in Tibet zhang yintang brought to Lhasa. So Coreopsis is definitely not strictly Galsang flower in terms of the time the species was introduced into China. Broadly speaking, “gesang meidao” is probably a synonym for the most hardy wildflower on the plateau, while botanically speaking, asters from the composite family and the common cultivated plant chrysanthemum from Lhasa to qamdo all match the characteristics of Galsang flower.
