Wrong fact - flowers with no fragrance are not offered while praying
Fact: Sunflowers and hibiscus are known not to have fragrance but they have a lot of value.
Fact: Hibiscus is the most common flower offered to deities. It has no fragrance.
And define character! Courage and outspokenness does not make character.

Character is very important for earning respect in the society. The man should have ethical values. One can't compare the character less people with flowers not having fragrance.
As for flowers, I don't think flowers without a fragrance is a waste. A lot of beautiful flowers like Dahlia, Sunflower have no fragrance at all. Doesn't mean they are a waste. Their sheer beauty is worthwhile beholding. They rejuvenate our lives, don't they?
Live life Kingsize!
The beauty and fragrance of flowers made them a prominent choice for offerings to God. This was further modified by the religious leaders as per their knowledge of scriptures as well as other factors for categorisation - which flower to be offered to God and which not. The logic behind such categorisation may be available in some religious books though I am only making a guess and not read it.
Today we are following those guidelines as heard in the society from our elders. So strictly speaking adherence to those guidelines is only a matter of faith.
Anyway the flowers are a thing of beauty and the well known phrase says - A thing of beauty is joy for ever.
Knowledge is power.
