Red-leaved ragweed part of fall scenery in Shanghai
The colorful red-leaved ragweed field in Century Park has been attracting many tourists to enjoy the nature in early autumn in Shanghai.
Viewing from the air, the 20,000-square-meter red-leaved ragweed field in Century Park presents intertwined colors of red, yellow and orange, echoing the green grass and blue sky. The intoxicating scene attracts various tourists to appreciate and take pictures.
Since 2016, Century Park has tried to plant red-leaved ragweed on a large scale. After 6 years of careful cultivation, the plant type of red-leaved ragweed is limited at 60cm high, and 85% of the plants form a compact plant type, just like a sea of flowers.
This year, based on the planting experience of previous years, the staff of Century Park strengthened each red-leaved ragweed during its growth period, and installed a supporting device for each plant so that it could resist the attack of typhoon season in Shanghai. And these red-leaved ragweed maintains in good condition after the typhoon Muifa passing through.
As the weather cools down a bit compared to the past hot summer, the tender green of red-leaved ragweed in the early stage will gradually turn into yellow, orange, red, and purple, making tourists feel the beauty of nature and the strong autumn atmosphere.
