Unique to Aesry Surlaenis'a, the delicate shar'nath blossom needs careful tending or it will not bloom. The blossoms are jealously guarded by their growers, causing many a feud among the homeowners who competed fiercely for young plants to raise. Young men and women of daring climbed walls to pick a single blossom for their darlings. Finally the government was forced to step in. The solution was to make available a public flower bed for all to enjoy. Today the shar'nath blossoms are traditionally preserved and worn by brides on their wedding day but only if the blossoms are gathered and gifted to them by their groom. The wearing of the shar'nath blossoms symbolizes that the groom prizes his bride beyond all gold or other treasure.

The wives and husbands of sailors often wear preserved or freshly picked shar'nath blossoms to show that they will wait for their loved one to return.

It is also believed that shar'nath blossoms that leave Surlaenis will cause ill luck for the wearer. Therefore, real shar'nath blossoms are never worn by islanders outside of their homeland. Curiously, however, many believe that jewelry shaped like the shar'nath flower is free from bad luck, will remind those leaving the island of their native shores, and bring them home again.
