The legend about magnolia flower, which runs through the Chinese traditional folk story color. The story tells the story of three sisters living in a deep mountain a long time ago. The elder sister’s name is Magnolia, the second sister’s name is Magnolia, and the younger sister’s name is Huang Yulan. One day when they went down the mountain to play, they found cold water and autumn smoke in the village. The three sisters were very surprised. After asking the people in the village, they learned that the First Emperor of Qin had driven the mountain to fill the sea and killed the Princess Lobster. Since then, the Lord Dragon has become an enemy of Zhangjiajie. The King locked the salt store and prevented Zhangjiajie people from eating salt. Finally, the plague occurred and many people died. The three sisters felt very sorry for them, and they decided to help them ask for salt. But how easy is it? After being repeatedly rejected by the Dragon King, the three sisters had to start with the crab general who guarded the salt barn and fascinated the crab general with their own brewed flowers. They took the opportunity to dig through the salt barn and soak all the salt into the sea water. The people in the village were saved, but the three sisters were changed into flower trees by the dragon King. Later, people named the tree “magnolia” in their honor, and the flowers they brewed became their own fragrance. The story is very simple and beautiful, but it also reflects people’s pursuit of beautiful things and yearning for perfection.
