Selling the golden eugenia flowers earn the growers a profit of over K40,000 per day. That is the reason why the villagers are growing golden eugenia in their yards on a manageable scale.

Golden eugenia growers on a manageable scale earn extra income for their families in Myawady town in Kayin State, said U Win Kyi, a golden eugenia grower from Yaypusan village in Myawady town of Kayin State.
The golden eugenia is grown with the use of Lio fertilizer. The flowers are cultivated for a year until they could be yielded. The lifespan of golden flowers is 20 years. The expired golden eugenia trees could be cut in half and grown back, he added.
The golden eugenia species are purchased from Thailand. The golden eugenia leaves are exported to Thailand. They are also sold in town markets and the regions near our villages for K1,000 for a handful of flowers.
Eugenia is one of the essential flowers for pilgrims because it symbolizes success for the Myanmar people. The pagodas across the country were closed to curb the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic period. Now, the famous pagodas in regions and states will reopen. However, the visitors need to follow the COVID-19 protocols as guided by the pagoda board of trustees.
