In the 18th century, Antoine-Augustin Parmentier popularized pototoes with different ways. He blandished the Queen Marie-Antoinette to decorate her hair with potato flowers. Queen's advertisement of potatoes worked before the French Revolution. After the Revolution woman's mode changed, but potato flowers are still blooming.

They look like bells and nice colour combination. We have this flower called Parijatha, I don't know the English name, it has the white and orange combination, simple and beautiful.
