In the Southern Cultures park, flowers appeared on a unique davidia nvolucrata called the handkerchief tree. Such a telling name was given to the plant for amazing stipules, they sway like white scarves in the wind during flowering.

Only at this time you can see visible places: two large white bracts between appeals Spherical inflorescences, from afar, the bracts resemble napkins or handkerchiefs, this sight is like a miracle: as if someone specially decorated the plant, - they say in the press service of the Caucasian Reserve .

Davidia nvolucrata - a rare plant. You can meet the handkerchief tree in the wild only in China, in the mountains at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level. The only tree outside the Celestial Empire blooms in the Southern Cultures park, but there will be a whole group of exotic davidia in development here. For many years, employees of the "Southern Cultures" have been discovering the reproduction of this plant. Only recently the experiment was successfully completed, and the first seedlings have already been planted from old trees.
