Romantic in Pink: Wild Pink Grass Field in Shanghai, China

Wild Pink Grass Field in Shanghai, China
 
Visitors take photos among the pink plumes in Shanghai's Jinshan district on. The landscape, filled with 1.87 hectares of muhlenbergia capillaris, commonly known as the hairawn muhly, recently has become a hit on social media. The plant's blooming season lasts from mid-September to mid-November, and it has become a new favorite in the urban landscape for the pink, feathery look of its flowers
 

Hairawn muhly in Shanghai's Jinshan district transforms the landscape into a feathery pink blanket during blossom season.
 





Hairawn muhly is becoming a new favorite in the urban landscape thanks to its pink, feathery looking flowers during blossom season.
 



The poetic pink landscape lies under a blue sky.
 
 
You see, China is not only known for ancient monuments and relics, and also some breathtaking nature beauty!

  5. Stunning pictures. You should choose one of these for a photocontest or something. I do agree that China has a lot to offer. Its indeed so much more than relics & historical monuments. The country also has some breathtaking landscapes which I hope I'll be able to visit soon. How many days do you guys recommend Shanghai?

    1. Thanks Lance! For a week or two you can enjoy the beauty of Shanghai and its nearby places, and recommended to live like locals. Actually Chinese from rural places are very friendly and accommodating to foreigners, no matter your race is. You only have need to be more open-minded and more emotional to communicate with them.

    1. Thank you Amrita!

      There are many beautiful places to visit in China, and yeah most of the mainstream media only focus on China's negative side. China doesn't need to prove itself that the country is beautiful - you have to visit them and know them. :)

  35. This is absolutely gorgeous. I have never been to China but I would love to see this place. The blooming window is short, but not as short as cherry blossoms so that's good!
