In the past few years, Jiaochangzhong Road is the hottest place to take photos in Kunming. From April to mid of May every year, Jacaranda has become one of the most beautiful flowers on the streets in the City. There are more than 250 jacarandas planted on both sides of the two-kilometer-long road of the Jiaochangzhong Road. The flowers dye the entire tree and street to a blue-purple color. Walk slowly under the jacaranda trees, as if wandering in a blue dream in the sea of flowers. When the flower rain falls, it looks romantic and as poetic as its flower language "waiting for love in despair".
In 1984, Kunming Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences first introduced jacaranda to Kunming from Algeria at the same time with phoenix wood. Both of them are tall and beautiful when it blooms, especially suitable for grown as road landscape tree. Jacaranda grows well in Kunming, generally blooms from April to June, but flowering period is short than the original place only about one month.
The jacaranda is in full bloom every year, which always attracts tourists from the whole country to Kunming. Jiaochangzhong Road, an important secondary road connecting Xuefu Road and Erhuan North Road, becomes more congested. In March this year, Jiaochangzhong Road underwent road upgrading and reconstruction. The floor tiles on the sidewalk, the walls on both sides of the road, and the landscape of the theme square have been specially set up with jacaranda theme patterns to create an atmosphere for the entire block. Four new theme parks and theme squares were added at the intersection of Erhuan North Road, Jiaochang North Road, Jiaochang West Road and Xuefu Road to further highlight the blue jacaranda theme. This transformation also set up some safe areas suitable for taking photos to avoid safety hazards caused by tourists staying on the road.
The unique landscape design has made the Jacaranda theme park become a good place for tourists and citizens to enjoy flowers and relax. In the Jacaranda theme park, you can also buy the Jacaranda ice cream.
