Flowers of Love Burst into Bloom at Neishuangxi Nature Center

As Taipei ushers in early summer, the suburban part of the city is offering a picturesque landscape. At the Neishuangxi Nature Center, angel flowers (Angelonia) and love flowers (Agapanthus africanus) are in full bloom, adding a refreshing touch to the surrounding with their soft colors.

According to the Geotechnical Engineering Office of Public Works Department, Agapanthus africanus, commonly referred to as lily with hundred seeds by locals, is a perennial flower. The name agapanthus (flower of love) derives from the Greek word for love—“agape”, and “anthos”, meaning flower. The agency invites the public to come and enjoy the extravaganza Mother Nature has to offer.

Starting May 12 and lasting for three consecutive weekends, the center will be open to visitors between 9 AM and 4 PM. No preregistration for entry is required during this period. Guided tours around the center will be available free of charge. Visitors will also have a chance to see medicinal herb and aromatic plants at the center.
