International Garden of Taipei, Taiwan at Canada Blooms 2012
The International Garden of Taipei, Taiwan is one of the Feature Gardens at the Canada Blooms Flower and Garden Festival. This year's theme was "CityCulture". The TAIPEI garden, designed by Landscape Architect Ronald Holbrook, reflects the primary flora, landscape and iconic cultural features of the City of Taipei, Taiwan.
The contemporary garden, created in the tones of black, grey, white, green and fuchia, features landmarks of Taipei, such as Tower 101, colourful Asian paper lanterns, living green wall, water feature/hot springs and formations of pink and fuchsia flowers, shrubs (such as the pink thododendron, the official flower of Taipei), and perennials.
A chance to win a trip to one of the most beautiful cities in the world was offered.
