One day, an old man asked to see the King to tell him how to save the princess. According to the old man, Carnation will be saved by the leaves of a white flower, which grows precariously on the top of a mountain, between two abysses and a waterfall. The king's father ordered those who obtained this flower to become a son-in-law and inherit the throne later. The boys' landing in the forest to search for trees began, day after day, but no one could find that precious flower while the Carnation's disease got worse and worse.
Like a miracle brought to her, suddenly a young woodcutter, looking poor, offered the King that precious flower. Carnations were saved when drinking, the woodcutter became a prestigious concubine that made many people wish.

Suddenly, all the news of the phoenix was not negative, every day she still went to the stream bank to sing to him as if returning to her was the sound of the pig wind blowing to her heart. Like that, in the afternoon, she went to the mountain waterfall to wait in vain for news of her husband. And whatever happens, it must come, one afternoon the birds fly back to bring the bad news back. Nang was in pain, burst into tears and despaired and threw herself along the waterfall, disappearing in the midst of the rushing water.
From where she stood, suddenly appeared a flower with the same shape as the flower that in the past, the consort brought to save her life, except that the flower was red. And people put that flower as carnation.
