The roses in the Chiang Kai-shek Shilin Residence are now blooming! The spring flowers now bloom with a romantic passion. We invite you to visit the residence between April 12 and 28 to join us at the rose garden!

The Shilin Residence Rose Show 2019 offers more than just a variety of roses. This year, the “Amazing pressed-flower making club” and “Color arts club” will exhibit pressed flowers and color arts together among a wide range of creative art. Citizens are invited to the spring flower viewing to experience the many faces of roses.

Director Chen Jung-hsing of the Parks and Street Lights Office (PSLO) said that this year, the Shilin Residence Rose Show invited a famous pressed-flower making organization, the “Amazing pressed-flower making club,” to exhibit their great pieces in the greenhouse beside the rose garden. With the theme of “Lovely rose”, 45 sets of pressed flowers, 10 sets of dried flowers, and 10 sets of dream flowers are being exhibited. Inheriting the spirit of the Taipei Flora Expo, the works will also be exhibited at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics-related “warm up” promotional exhibition. Famous Japanese artist Nobuo Sugino is invited to showcase his pressed floral art, along with ten outstanding Japanese pressed-flower artists.

The most special piece of art is the three huge connected flower art pieces “Flower Sea,” created by the female pressed-flower making class in the Agency of Corrections’ Chiayi Prison. The romantic environment is covered with a floral scent of roses. The show also invited the “Color arts club” lead by instructor Li Lan to exhibit oil paintings of roses surrounding the theme of “Secular love”. 56 oil paintings are rendered in special painting techniques. Appreciating the art, you can feel the joy in these expressions of beauty and love. The rose show also wants to draw our attention to vulnerable groups so that the love can always be delivered to them. Let us be surrounded by the beauty and happiness of roses.

Horticulture Management Division supervisor He Chi-hua further explains that due to recent exposure to sunlight and moderate weather, roses are growing and blooming at a great pace in the outdoor rose garden. The variety of roses blooming in the outdoor rose garden of Chiang Kai-Shek Shilin Residence are red, pink, purple, yellow, and orange Floribunda, English Roses, French Roses, Hybrid Tea Roses, and Shrub Roses. The 5 major categories of roses covered about 125 species and over 2000 rose plants are blooming one after another. The scrambling shrubs of Climber Roses extend through the corridor of roses. Citizens and lovers are invited to embrace the romantic atmosphere here away from the city. Come and enjoy the view of aromatic roses, pressed flowers, and paintings during the greatest time of the year for flower blossom viewing.
