Enjoy vibrant flame tree blossoms in Wuzhishan City

Known by various names including royal poinciana, flamboyant, or flame of the forest, the flame tree provides dappled shade in summer, with wide, spreading branches and brilliantly colored flowers. There was a very large flame tree in the yard where we lived as children, and we liked to play under the tree when it was in bloom. Later, after we left our hometown, the tree was long gone. However, the view of it in full bloom has not left my heart.

When I passed through Maodao Township in Wuzhishan City recently, I was surprised to find tall flame trees in full bloom on both sides of the road, flamboyantly showing off vibrant red blossoms under the clear summer sky.

The city of Wuzhishan wears a striking red summer dress composed of scarlet flame tree flowers lining her streets - what a bold fashion statement!

In Wuzhishan City, you will find the flame tree almost everywhere, and just one glimpse of the cheerful flowers nodding in the breeze is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face.

If you have time to go, join me on a trip to Wuzhishan City and enjoy the blooming flame tree flowers!
