By JIEYU WANGTAN, KAILONGICHONGQING|Oct 16,2020

The pink muhly grass is a must-see in autumn. Its romantically rosy appearance has attracted quite a few people, who shared many snaps of it on WeChat Moments. Where can we find the plant in the main urban area of Chongqing? Here are two places. Come with us on this rail transit journey for the pink muhly grass.

Explore its dreamy beauty this autumn

Autumn features more vivid colors than spring and summer. The pink muhly grass renders a particularly romantic and dreamy pink to this season.

With a poetic name, the pink muhly grass is a plant of pink to purple inflorescences. The grass clusters appear like a pink flower sea with a sense of airy and dreamy beauty when seeing from a distance. Coming into full bloom in October, the plant presents its best form in autumn.

Some of Chongqing’s districts and counties have attracted numerous visitors to their pink muhly grass planting sites in the past few years. Now, Chongqing citizens don’t need to drive long and could take rail transit to see the plant in the main urban area.

Lijia Smart Park has a large area of pink muhly grasses. Although the weather was not good for taking photos over the past few days, many people came to the park to beautify pink muhly grasses. It is convenient for visitors to reach the park, just taking CRT Line 6 and walking a few minutes from Exit 2B of Jinshansi Station.

A rosy cloud of pink muhly grasses at waist height send billows of airy pink flower panicles dancing in the wind. Even a random snap of them manifests excessive beauty.

When we visited Guangyang Isle in mid-September, only a few of the pink muhly grasses there had bloomed. How is it now? A staff member of Guangyang Isle told us the plants are in full bloom at present. Visitors can take CRT Line 6 to Changshengqiao Station, and then take Bus No. 176 from Exit 2 to the stop of Bus No.6 on Tongjiang Avenue. After getting off the bus, visitors need to scan the reservation code and show their health code, and then they can take a round-the-island bus tour.

In September, the most popular area on the island is the large rice field. In October, the field of pink muhly grasses has become the major attraction. The field of pink muhly grasses is the size of several football pitches, forming a very romantic pink flower sea at the grasses’ full bloom. It’s a great choice to overlook Mingyue Mountain and admire the beautiful scenery of pink muhly grasses there. Guangyang Isle presents a Chongqing version of the famous painting, “Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains,” with its ecological restoration efforts. If you love the romantic scenery there, hurry up to visit it before the autumn ends.
