Thread: Singapore Sakura

  1. #1

    Default Singapore Sakura

    With today's widespread rain after a long dry spell, marks the begining of the Mempat and trumpet tree's flowering season. Any mempat and trumpet hot spot for "sakura viewing" in Singapore to share?

    I know Yishun avenue 4 is lined with trumpet trees and they are blooming now.

    Thought of the ones near Outram MRT outside the blood donation building
    But google tells me I'm wrong - pink trumpet tree I think

    Google did point me to another someone else's blog with a recent posting on mempat sightings
    Lazy Lizard Tales

    Hope that helps

    Sadly, they chopped down a lot of them (along Northland Pri school)
    Another "improvement" to the environment by the Town Council


    Bishan Park had a wonderful bloom last year. A sight to behold. Not sure about today, as I've not passed by there (its blocked up anyway for yet another "improvement")


    I often wonder if they managed to cultivate them to be shorter and grew them specifically in a park, if would really make the park a tourist attraction.
