Common name: Rosy trumpet tree

Chinese name: 紅花風鈴木

Location: The trees were planted along the banks of a creek between the Luchuan East St. and Luchuan West St.

How to get here: Board any train of the TRA and alight at Taichung Station. Walk towards the Miyahara Ophthalmology Sweet Shop in Zhongshan Road. You will find the creek at the intersection with the two Luchuan streets.

a closer look at the flowers

The rosy trumpet tree usually blossoms in January or February.

These trees are scattered in Central Taiwan.

They were lovely to look at because of the violet color of the flowers.

Hmmm... Seeing the rosy trumpet tree for the first time gave me an idea to look for more in Taiwan.
