Nantou’s Meifeng Farm

Trip to Meifeng Farm
Meifeng Farm [梅峰農場] is located within NTU’s Highland Experimental Farm on the Central Cross-Island Highway just past Cingjing Farm if approaching from the west.  Cathy and I visited during my hiatus from blogging and I haven’t gotten around to posting pictures from our trip until now.  We visited during the last day they were open to the public during their Peach Blossom Festival [桃花 (Prunus persica)].

Although most of the Peach Blossoms we saw were pink, a few trees were a vivid shade of red:

Peach Blossoms weren’t the only flowers around, there were several greenhouses devoted to other varieties.  Here is the Taiwan Pleione [台灣一葉蘭 (Pleione formosana)].  Sometimes called the Taiwan Tulip, it is found at elevations ranging from 1,000-2,500 meters above sea level:

The Meifeng Farm Official Website has a lot of information about getting there but information on events doesn’t seem to be too clearly laid out on the English version.

More pictures from the trip can be found on my Meifeng Farm Flickr set.
