The Varmaconga blossom (also Varwaconga flower; Varmaconga in Derhetian means ‘moose tail’), is an exceedingly large widespread family of Sakurmae. The Varmaconga blossom grows annually in the Derhette Islands, Chazawale, and Tatichaza. It can be found growing rampantly along the coast and in the bottom of lagoons due to the grainy wet soil. The Varmaconga blossom can grow to 0.6-1 m (2-3 ft.)tall with large alternatively extensive pink-purple foliage. The flowers are produced in racemes clusters of three to eight together at the nodes on long thin stems. The flower has a sticky texture to the human touch that seeps blue liquid when the stamen is damaged or broken.

It is the national flower of the small island nation Chazawale. It was introduced into the small nation by Gradus Goodjeer, an explorer that traveled to the Derhette Islands and brought the flower back to cultivate. The Varwaconga blossom has become a symbol of freedom for the Chazawaleans whom in 1907 were able to form an army to fight off the Chinese that had invaded their land for over 16 years. Every year on December 12 an annual celebration is held to commemorate the event.

The Varmaconga blossom is also widely cultivated in Tatichaza, suited to the climate of the area as an ornamental plant.

The ANOVA reports that the blue liquid from the Varmaconga blossom as being toxic to pigs. The liquid according to the ANOVA is said to cause rampant diarrhea leading to colon failure resulting in death. Pigs are the only species known to be affected.
