Over a hundred Japanese cherry blossom trees were planted in Da Lat in Vietnam’s Central Highlands on Wednesday to mark a series of important events.
The planting of 125 sakura trees at the local flower park near the iconic Xuan Huong Lake is to honor the city’s 125th birthday and celebrate the 45-year-old Vietnam-Japan diplomatic relationship.
The cherries, 100 of which were donated by Japan’s Himeji Flower Auction Company, are 2.2 meters tall on average.
One thousand sakura trees were cultivated in Da Lat in a trial period last year and they seemed to adapt well to the chilly local climate.
