Novem­ber: Chrysan­the­mums in Tai­wan

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

White chrysan­the­mums may be bad luck ac­cord­ing to Chi­nese tra­di­tion, but that doesn’t stop us from fall­ing in love with these cute pom-pom petals found through­out Miaoli County in west­ern Tai­wan. Head to Ji­uhu Farm in Tongluo town­ship for your dose of chrysan­the­mum this win­ter. Cram your In­sta­gram feed with these adorable white spheres, which from afar look just like thou­sands of fluffy bunny tails bob­bing on the hill­side. Not only will they look In­sta-glam­orous on your feed, this pop­u­lar house­plant can also help re­move tox­ins such as am­mo­nia and ben­zene from the air. In Chi­nese medicine, they’re even said to have ther­a­peu­tic ef­fects on sore throats and the flu.

Catch the Chrysan­the­mum Mori­folium Fes­ti­val around mid-Novem­ber, where you can watch farm­ers har­vest the flow­ers, or hand­pick some for your­self. Grab a bag of dried flow­ers to take home and tank up on chrysan­the­mum tea.
