Milk flowers season in Hanoi
Updated at Wednesday, 15 Nov 2017, 15:21
Each season in Hanoi has its own attractions. For people living in Hanoi and those who have ever been in Hanoi, autumn is the best season of the year. Milk flower is praised as one of the symbols of Hanoi’s autumn. When autumn comes, we feel the cool breeze and smell fragrance of Hoa Sua or Milk Flowers.
Not as resplendent as peach blossom, flamboyant, or chrysanthemum, milk flower has a plain beauty and its attraction lies in its ardent sweet fragrance. Milk flowers blossom in the late autumn and early winter. The streets, where milk flower abound such as Quang Trung, Nguyen Du, Quan Thanh, Thuy Khue, and Thanh Nien, are carpeted with tiny white flowers. On windless nights, the ardent fragrance makes the autumn atmosphere more romantic and poetic.
Milk flower has been an endless inspiration for poets, song writers, and artists to compose ever-green works about Hanoi such as “Remember Hanoi’s autumn” by Trinh Cong Son, “My dear, Hanoi streets” by Phu Quang and Phan Vu, “Hanoi in the fall” by Huu Xuan, and “Quietness of Hanoi by night” by Phu Quang and Pham Thi Ngoc Lien. The most popular song is “Milk flower” by Hong Dang written in 1978. That mention their charming fragrance.
Walking along Hanoi’s streets and besides its lakes, you breath in the beautifully sweet fragrance of Hoa Sua, or Milk Flowers. The streets where milk flower abound such as Phan Dinh Phung and Hoang Hoa Tham, and the National University’s campus don beautiful cloaks of white when the season of milk flowers returns.
Milk flower trees line the streets, perfuming the night air and creating an area of romance for young couples out on a date. Hanoians say when the  milk flowers are in bloom, it’s the best time to visit the capital city.
