Sometimes referred to as Prickly Daisies in Basic, these native Korribani plants have managed to survive The Great Blight brought upon by the Exiles. Needing very little water compared to other plants, over the millennia these flowers have continued to thrive on their native planet
Dzaitsis all have exactly 18 petals arranged in a near perfect circular configuration. Its colors had initially co-evolved with native pollinators, to help attract and guide the small creatures. These plants don’t follow any particular seasonal pattern and bloom year-round, so long as there’s still some water and sunlight. The stems are rough and covered in tiny, barbed thorns to thwart off anything that might eat it as well as conserving the water within the plant. Hatyas had tough bills and mouths adapted for the thorns, and would graze on dzaitsis as one of their primary food source.
Sith had special leather gloves made from hatya hides that would allow them to cultivate dzaitsis as well as things like the thornrose. Being smooth and soft, the leaves are often be used for salads or ground into pastes for various dishes. The flowers have a mildly sweet fragrance and are dried to be used for teas although it can also be freshly consumed (by Sith). If one has enough patience and a lot of dzaitsis, a rich, deep violet “honey” can be made from the nectar and pollen of the flowers.
Seeing how these flowers managed to survive through the most strenuous conditions over the eons, dzaitsis are often seen as symbols of stability and endurance.
