Hoepian Flora [redux]- Kissumeria cordeflorum by Kihaku-Gato
Hoepian Flora [redux]- Kissumeria cordeflorum

The tree of love, passion, and romance, it is quite fitting that it is the descendent of the Bleeding Heart flower (Lamprocapnos spectablis). Discarding its herbaceous perennial growth habits, it instead evolved a weeping tree-like habit. Some Kissumerias bloom every spring and autumn, while others bloom year round. A very rare tree to see, when seen it is found along cool mountain riversides, moist northern woodlands, and private gardens. Besides seed, this tree can also reproduce asexually from suckers that infrequently sprout up naturally.

 

It's name "Kissumeria" comes from the sound "kissu" (the sound of kissing). The scent of the flowers is considered a weak aphrodisiac, causing the human/dragon smeller to have an urge to kiss people that they find to be attractive (or to be more precise, make the smeller kiss people that they see as their significant other/soul mate). The stronger the scent (and the more emotionally attached the smeller is to the person), the more passionate the kiss may become. This makes it a popular ingredient for both love potions and aphrodisiac medications. It is also traditionally hung up in the spring like mistletoe in some localities.

 

Due to the overuse of these traditions, and the fact that the flowers’ scent causes people to kiss against their initial will and consent, some towns and cities have bylaws prohibiting the growth and usage of Kissumeria flowers and fruit. The wood, known as Kissuwood, can be used decoratively for furniture and handle ornamentation due to the inner wood’s unique blue and red ring colouration. Because of the tree’s rarity, having Kissuwood items or furniture is a symbol of high status. The Heartslavia Ardor Gardens have an abnormally large specimen tree named Utena, which is the only specimen of its kind and age to be displayed in a public garden.

Okay except for the last one; she's sitting down. Terra, Kayla, Riivar, Demauria, BlackJack, and Beneri in a lovely chibi lineup~

I was drawing them up for some graphics I needed for the oc askblog, buuut I felt with how good some of these turned out (especially Kayla- SHE SO CUUUUTE) that I mind as well share the chibi cuteness outside of that as an actual dA submission.

Cutie cutie patooties~
