The Hong Kong Flower Market in Mongkok is a little oasis with rows upon rows of stalls, shops and stands
brimming with fragrant blooms, bonsai trees, fresh cut flowers, exotic plants, and an abundance of foliage and
color that is truly a treat to the senses.
Orchids, bouganvillias, sunflowers, and all sorts of house and garden plants all compete for the shoppers' attention,
and here you find a great assortment of in-season, exported and locally grown flowers, plants, shrubs, and trees,
transforming this city block into a little hidden paradise.
Most of the shops and stalls at the Flower market are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. The housewives are out and about early in
the morning and the sidewalks are already crowded with the overflowing displays and the morning traffic.
And beyond flowers and plants, the shops are also very well-stocked with pots, vases and containers, seeds and garden accessories, craft and
floral supplies, you name it.
And here and there are touches of Chinese culture to be seen. There are the "Good Fortune Plants"
which hold special meaning for the Chinese, like the Lucky Bamboo arrangements, and the Bonsai Trees, the miniature trees that have been part of that ancient Chinese art for many generations.
