Mercury drops in Guangdong these days. Many residents notice that some trees by the roadside are blooming with beautiful pink flowers in many cities across Guangdong.
These trees with pink flowers are floss-silk trees, which are the most distinctive ornamental trees for regions where frosts are not severe. Outside of private gardens around the world, they are often planted along urban streets in subtropical areas such as in Spain, South Africa, Australia, northern New Zealand, and the southern USA. They bloom from October to December every year and floss-silk trees growing in Guangzhou will be in full bloom in December.
