    How to say flower in korean 

    flower in korean

     Flower in Korean is “꽃” (kkot). As you might have noticed, the Korean word for “flower” ends with ㅊ (pronounced with the “t” sound). Some flower names have the syllable 화, which stems from the Chinese character 花 meaning “flower.” 

    You should say 꽃 when you want to talk about generally any flower. 

    For example, “꽃 사러 가자.” (Let’s go buy some flowers.)

    • 연꽃 = Lotus
    • 벚꽃 = Cherry blossom
    • 동백꽃 = Camellia
    • 제비꽃 = Violet
    • 데이지 꽃 = Daisy

     화 is used when you refer to certain species of flowers, such as “매화” (apricot blossom), “수선화” (daffodil), etc..


    • 무궁화 = Hibiscus (South Korea’s national flower!)
    •  수선화 = Daffodil
    • 국화 = Chrysanthemum

    This has an impact on how you use it in sentences with objects or nouns that indicate particles.

    When combining the word “flower” (꽃 – kko) with an object, you would say 꽃을 (kkocheul), and when combined with a subject, you would say 꽃이 (kkochi). 

    These different forms help clarify the role of the flower in the sentence and make Korean grammar more precise and expressive.

    This simple yet profound term encompasses the essence of flowers’ elegance and symbolism in Korean culture.
