Cherry Blossom !



Now at this time of the year, it's the peak of cherry blossom season in Japan. Well, I think it is the best time to visit Japan or Korea if you would like to view the cherry blossoms. Coincidently, the flowering plants called Tabebuia Rosea which are often regarded as Cherry Blossoms of Malaysia are also in full blooms here in Terengganu and all over Malaysia . These plants which are also known as 'pokok kertas tisu' are mostly planted along the roadsides in our country. .



Pokok ni is infront of a sundry shop near my house. The flowering plant is called Pink Tabebuia or Pink Trumpet.They require a distinct dry season in order to burst into bloom, hence the stretch of hot, dry weather in our country in mid February induced the trees to flower profusely.

The flowers are very soft and thin just like tissue papers. That's why it's called bunga kertas tisu


Besides pink flowers there are also the white flowers. The white variety is called Tabebuia Alba. After a few days of blooming, the flowers started to fall


Everyday I would pass by this road on the way to school. Last week ,the Tabebuia Rosea along the street were in full bloom.



Below are photos of the plants in Penang! Macam Cherry Blossom kat Jepun kan!

I think these beautiful flowering plants should be planted everywhere cause its really nice to see those flowers in full bloom. Cantik sangat!

  10. Bila bunga berguguran, pemandangan berubah menjadi cantik. Dongak nampak bunga, pandang ke bawah semua dilitupi bunga. Selalu tengok sakura dalam tv. Rupanya di sini juga banyak jenis bunga yang cantik menarik mewarnai pemandangan bila musimnya tiba.

  30. Assalamualaikum,

    I was blockhopping and came accross your blog with this wonderful flowers/tree. I have actually been wanting to know the name of the flower as I have seen them around in our country. My visit to the Japanese Garden in Amsterdam Bos recently brought to mind again that I should search for the name of this tree. How glad I am that I found it in your blog.

    I wish someone would plant this tree in our country like they plant sakura flowers in Japan, Korea and other countries. The sight of seeing sakura flowers in full bloom is simply beautiful. TQ for sharing this info.
