Guandu Park Welcomes Spring with New Outfit

The approach of spring has brought blooming flowers to the fields at Guandu Nature Park. In addition to the usual pink colors, this year the park is also decorated with streaks of violet – thanks to the presence of Chinese Spiranthes.
Often located in fields below 1,000 meters in elevation, Chinese Spiranthes comes into full bloom around the period of Tomb-sweeping Festival. Also called “Qingming flower,” they are delicate and resemble a chain of miniscule flowers looping around the stem.
In addition to Chinese Spiranthes the park is also the home to plants such as Asian Mazus and white cedar. These ‘residents’ of Guandu will also greet visitors in purple-color outfit during this period.
According to the Animal Protection Office (APO), these attractions show only part of the diversity of the wetlands in Guandu Nature Park. It also bears witness to the success of long-term conservation efforts carried out by both the agency and the Wild Bird Society of Taipei.
APO encourages the public to take time to visit the park and enjoy the purple-shaded landscape with friends and families.
