Hanoians enjoy stunning beauty of Sua flowers

The white flowers of Sua (Dalbergia tonkinensis), which look like fluffy clouds of white cotton covering the trees, have created a dreamlike scene for old but charming Hanoi.

For Hanoians, Sua flowers with a special fragrance remain an iconic symbol of the capital city during spring, after the traditional Tet holiday.

In the last days of February, Hanoi streets have been covered by the stunning beauty of Sua flowers.

The city is home to more than 1,400 white Sua trees, mainly on the streets of Phan Dinh Phung, Hoang Hoa Tham, Phan Chu Trinh, Giang Vo, and Thanh Nien.

When Spring comes, Hanoi’s streets are adorned with pure while petals that few world cities are endowed with.

The flowers are associated with the change of seasons. For Hanoians, white Sua flowers have become an enduring symbol of the capital and the coming of summer.

Sua flowers whiten Hanoi’s skies.

Sua flower petal is tiny but when blossoming massively, they create a white blanket covering Hanoi streets, adding them a romantic touch.

Sua flowers bloom quickly, fade easily, but bring a unique color for a short time to Hanoi.

Lovers of Hanoi want to stroll through these streets and contemplate the flowers or take some photos.

Strolling the city streets lined with the Sua flower in full bloom is truly a delight, creating the perfect setting for those who love photography.

Sua flowers are also a classic theme for poetic and song composition.
