Impossible love tale of vengeance

What does "Hercai" mean in Turkish? Folklore suggests that once upon a time, two wildflowers fell in love. One of them loved the other so much that when they bloomed in the spring, she was jealous of the other flowers around them. The flower, not able to withstand this jealousy, dreams of being with her beloved alone by blooming in the freezing cold of winter instead of spring. "Let's not bloom this spring like other flowers. Let's bloom in the middle of winter on snowy days so that all nature belongs to us and we live together, only you and me" The other flower agrees to the plan of blooming in the freezing cold when no one else dared to bloom. One of the lovers waited for the winter and the snow; the other couldn't resist and bloomed that summer. The flower that waited with longing bloomed in winter and looked for the other lover. The one that bloomed waited and waited to prove the greatness of love but the other flower did not bloom. After a while the flower lost hope in the freezing cold, bowed and died. Since that day, the flower that kept to the promise has been called "Kardelen" (Snowdriller), and the flower that was not faithful to love and abandoned the other lover halfway through their journey has been called "Hercai" (source: fb page Turkish Learning KivancED).
