In Zhongshan's Zimaling Park, the crateva religioa (commonly known as sacred garlic pear) trees are in full bloom. The yellow-white flowers make a full dress for the trees, and the long purplish red flower filaments look like the tentacles of butterflies, the stamens and corollas dancing with breezes as if a tree of butterflies were spreading their wings and ready to fly away.
The beautiful sacred garlic pear flowers attract the attention of quite a few visitors.
While in gorgeous blossom, the buds of the flowers are snow-white and will turn golden a few days later.
Clusters of soft white and light yellow flowers bloom splendidly on the branches.
