櫻花區Cherry Flowers (Yinghua)

 

櫻花區
 
在消壓塔旁您可以看到八重櫻、山櫻花及吉野櫻群。但您若是前往自來水園區沿著自行車道,則可以看到「日本河津櫻」,這在臺灣算是比較罕見的櫻花品種,日本河津櫻是日本人移植臺灣山櫻花至九州種植,與當地大島櫻自然繁衍出的新品種,顏色粉白、花瓣較一般櫻花大。
自來水園區在歷經多次栽種失敗後,終於讓園內的各種櫻花開花。每年一、二月間,櫻花逐漸綻放,嬌豔的模樣美不勝收。櫻花的花季很短,每一朵櫻花在平均開放十天後,花朵隨即凋謝,所以要欣賞它的美景可要及時。
 
Blossoming by the Pressure Relief Tower are groups of Prunus Campanulata (Pachongying), Taiwan Cherry (Shanyinghua), and Prunus yedoensis cv. Yedcensis (Jiyeying). If one visits the Water Park via the bikeway, one can see the "Japanese Flowering Cherry" (Ribenhejinying), a rare species in Taiwan. The Japanese Flowering Cherry is a hybrid of the Taiwan Cherry and the Prunus lannesiana (Dadaoying) from Japan's Kyushu. The color is grayish-white, and the petals are bigger than those of common cherry flowers.
After several failed attempts, the Water Park finally succeeded in making all the types of cherry flowers planted on its grounds blossom, creating views of ethereal beauty.The cherry flowers start to blossom in January, and finish in February. Since the flowering season is rather short – 10 days on average for each flower – please arrange your visit in season if you wish to enjoy the views at their best.
