Netizens In Awe Of This Sight
The beautiful sight of the city has left everyone on social media in awe. One user commented that it was an early bloom for Pink Trumpets. In fact, they are not in their full glory till late in March. Other than that, the comments section is flooded with ‘looks so beautiful’.
As for this exotic flower, Bengaluru is not the only place where you can find it. In fact, along Mumbai’s Vikhroli stretch of Eastern Express Highway, Pink Trumpets are lined and look wonderful with their pink glow. However, there is a difference in the species of flowers at both places. In Mumbai, you will find Tabebuia Heterophylla instead of Tabebuia Rosea. Nonetheless, both are like India’s versions of cherry blossoms and a sight to behold.
