If the landscaping of Chongqing’s urban districts is seen as a large garden, this spring, the area of the “garden” is not only bigger, but also has many new “members”. These flowers, which first appeared, made the “garden” more beautiful and more appealing.

如果把重慶主城的城市綠化比作一個大花園,今年春天,主城“花園”的面積不僅更大,還有了不少新“成員”、新景觀。這些首次出現在主城城市綠化中的花卉,把主城“花園”裝點得更美更靚。

In the Administrative Service Center Plaza of Jiangbei District, there is a particularly eye-catching flower ocean, attracting many citizens to take pictures.

在江北區行政服務中心廣場,有一片花海格外搶眼,引來不少市民拍照合影。

This flower ocean is colorful, with nearly ten colors including red, yellow, purple, and pink; and there are also many forms of flowers. What's even more interesting is that these flowers of different shapes are actually one species: Aster novi-belgii (more commonly known as “New York asters”). It is introduced that this is the first time that the urban district has planted large quantities of Aster novi-belgiis, in over ten varieties.

之所以引人注意,是因為這片花海的顏色豐富,有紅、黃、紫、粉在內的近10種顏色;花的形態也很多。更有意思的是,這些形態各異的花,其實都是一個品種——荷蘭菊。江北區園林綠化管理所主任周柱兵說,這是主城首次大面積種植荷蘭菊,有十多個品種。

Passing through the Beiqiaotou of Huanghuayuan Bridge and Jiahua Bridge, have you been attracted by a pink flower ocean?

路過黃花園大橋北橋頭、嘉華大橋北橋頭時,你是否被一片粉色的花海所吸引?

The blooming pink and pink-white flowers have beautified the urban city, and these flowers have a very elegant name: "Margaret." Margaret's form is relatively simple, mainly in single or double flaps, and in red, pink or pink-white. In the sixteenth century, the Norwegian Princess Margaret named the flower by her own name, so Margaret is also called “Girl’s Flower”.

一朵朵粉色、粉白色的小花,給主城“花園”增添了一份小清新。而這些花兒有一個很優雅的名字,叫“瑪格麗特”。瑪格麗特的花型比較簡單,主要有單瓣和重瓣,花色以紅、粉、粉白為主。16世紀時,挪威公主瑪格麗特以自己的名字替這朵小花命名,因此瑪格麗特也有“少女花”的別稱。

It is said that Margaret is suitable for long-term planting and the florescence will last to around October.

瑪格麗特不嬌氣,適合長期種植,花期將持續到10月左右。

More than 160 trees are being hung with hydrangeas at this time in the green belt of Jianxin North Road. This is the first time that Viburnum marcocephalum (common name: Chinese snowball) is planted in Jiangbei District and its variant is the well-known Qionghua.

在建新北路的綠化隔離帶裏,160多棵樹上此時正掛滿了繡球花。這是江北區首次種植的木本繡球,它的變種是大家熟悉的瓊花。

There are dozens of hydrangea flowers on each tree, and hundreds of green hydrangea, daisies and calendulas form a multi-colored flower band. In a few days, the hydrangea flowers on these trees will change from green to white.

每棵樹上都有幾十朵繡球花,數百朵綠色的繡球和雛菊、金盞菊組成了一條多色彩、多層次的花帶。再過幾天,這些樹上的繡球花還將“變身”,從綠色變成白色。

There are several distinctive peach trees in the Administrative Service Center Plaza of Jiangbei District. These trees are not only with beautiful shapes and drooping withe, but also flowers in two colors.

在江北區行政服務中心廣場的桃花林中,有幾棵桃樹與眾不同。這幾棵樹不僅樹形優美,枝條自然下垂,而且樹上開出的桃花也有兩種顏色。

Among them, a peach tree has pink and white peach blossoms and some petals are in pink and white. This kind of peach tree is called " Paeonia Suffruticosa ".

其中,一棵桃樹上開出了粉紅色和白色兩種顏色的桃花。有的花瓣甚至也出現了粉紅色和白色。而且,這種桃樹也有一個好聽的名字,叫做“紅白二喬”。

One peach tree with flowers of two colors cannot be achieved simply by grafting. Therefore, it is worth a visit.

一棵桃樹上開出兩種顏色的花,僅靠簡單的嫁接是無法實現的。所以,紅白二喬也比較珍貴,值得一看。
