Pretoria – South Africa’s administrative capital – is also known as “City of Phoenix trees” with tens of thousands of trees around street corners, roads, and parks or gardens.

Spring in Pretoria begins from September to November as this city lies in the humid subtropical climate area. From mid to late spring, the purple phoenix flowers begin to bloom.

Since the 19th century, Pretoria’s purple phoenix trees have appeared in South Africa. Despite originating from South America, they still thrive in South Africa’s hot and humid climate. In addition, their tolerance to drought is pretty good.

According to Hubpages, the first two purple phoenix trees grew at a school in Pretoria’s Arcadia area in around 1888. Since then, they have begun to thrive, and thrive in everywhere in the city.

However, the South African government control strictly the purple phoenix tree growth because they are the exotic species. They can threaten the local ecological balance.

Regulations allow the Pretoria government to retain all of the purple phoenix trees in the city. Nevertheless, a new species will replace the dead ones.

The government has to make such a concession. This is because if they cut down all the purple phoenix in the city, Pretoria would lose its inherent character.

While purple phoenix trees grow well in many lands such as Central America, South America, Cuba, Jamaica or some Asian countries, they still appear as the “vulnerable” species in the red list of International Union for Conservation of Nature. Not only the purple phoenix trees but also the white ones also color some city corners in this capital’s natural picture.

This city with tens of thousands of purple phoenix trees is really wonderful. If you have a chance, come and contemplate this beautiful heaven.
