KAOHSIUNG, TAIWAN (TraNews) – Walking down the sidewalks in the vicinity of Kaohsiung Cultural Centre, passersby would stop for a while and look up to appreciate the bright yellow hue of the golden shower trees. As the wind gently blows, the golden yellow flowers will fall from the golden shower trees, creating a romantic and poetic ambience.
The golden shower tree or golden rain tree is widely cultivated as ornamental plant in tropical or subtropical areas. It usually blooms between May and July. The golden shower trees are probably the most striking in late spring with large clusters of showy bright yellow flowers. If you stand under these trees, you may even sniff the mild fragrance of yellow flowers.
