The delicate flowers of Liliumlongiflorum, or Easter lilies, are in full bloom on every corner of Hanoi’s streets in the early days of April.
Easter lilies are considered to be a symbol of April in Hanoi. They are sold by street vendors on many streets in the capital city of Hanoi.
Although Easter lilies are rather expensive in the early season, people are lining up to buy them by the bunch.
Easter lilies usually only last for one month from late March to early April.
With their subtle scent and elegant white petals, Easter lilies enthral many people.
Easter lilies stand out among other colourful flowers for sale on the street due to their simple beauty.
These days, Hanoians can easily see Easter lilies on Hanoi streets such as Thuy Khe, Le Duan, Nguyen Chi Thanh, and Lang.
The flower buds are carefully wrapped in netting.
Easter lilies are mostly grown in the Tay Tuu and Quang Ba flower villages in Hanoi. Growers have to plant bulbs of these flowers in September for them to bloom in time for April of the next year.
While the flowers are in season, young people love to take beautiful photos with Easter lilies.
