A brand-new flower viewing website to keep the public up-to-date with the latest flower appreciation locations and occasions was launched by the government on Thursday.
Over 1,500 parks and gardens under the management of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department are with green canopies and seasonal blooms all year round, drawing crowds of flower viewers during the flowering season.
The public can find photos, videos and information for eight beloved species, including red leaves (sweet gum, bald cypress and water pine), rosy trumpet tree, cherry blossom, yellow pui, camel's foot tree, rhododendron, Queen crape myrtle and lotus flower on the site.
All the information would be constantly updated during their blossoming periods for viewers' reference.
The debut plant of this new website is red leaves found in Tsing Yi Park, North District Park, Jordan Valley Park and the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Public members can check the foliage changes in these parks and seize chances to enjoy the seasonal beauty.
The flowering status of the remaining seven species will be updated over time.
The new website will also become a one-stop platform for flower appreciation, enabling the public to easily obtain relevant information on flower viewing at the LCSD venues such as the Hong Kong Flower Show, Blossom Around Town, Flower Appreciation 101, Flower Express and Photo-Gallery of Hong Kong Ornamental Plants.
