Our very own ‘sakura season’ in full bloom in Malaysia
The “Tissue Paper Tree” Nickname
Similar to the sakura blossoms of Japan, Tecoma trees in Malaysia bloom in the pink or white varieties. These delicate blooms resemble little trumpets, with soft tissue paper like petals that have a nickname of ’tissue paper tree’.
The trees have showered around the neighborhood area in Gombak, Selangor with pink and white petals.
According to the Forest Research Institute Malaysia (FRIM) website, the Tecoma tree, also known by its scientific name Tabebuia pentaphylla, is native to Central and South America and is often planted along roadsides and gardens to beautify the landscape.
When to See?
From February to March, these trees bloom their fullest in dry seasons that follow spells of heavy rain, drawing admiration from onlookers and Instagrammers looking to pepper their feeds with sakura snapshots. Even if you can’t catch the famed sakura blossoms in Japan, Taiwan or South Korea this year, consider instead a visit to these quaint locations in Malaysia, from Penang to Kedah.
