University participates in annual Hong Kong Flower Show
18 Mar 2013
The University and the Society of Chinese Materia Medica are participating again in the annual Hong Kong Flower Show organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. On display are 10 miniature masterpieces from the University’s Man Lung Garden and a series of medicinal plants.
This year, students from the School of Chinese Medicine (SCM) are introducing the comprehensive application of medicinal plants to diet and medication, and the functions of the plant odours through a range of displays which enabled the public to learn more about the use of medicinal plants in general. The plants on display are not only of high medicinal value, but could also be incorporated into meals to maintain health. The odour of some plants can be particularly refreshing or used to repel insects.
In addition to the SCM exhibits, the University also selected 10 miniature masterpieces from the Man Lung Garden for display at the Show. Among the plants on display are Cape Jasmine, Murraya paniculata, Ulmus parvifolia, Ficus microcarpa and Podocarpus macrophyllus. The exhibition is being held at Victoria Park until 24 March (Sunday). For details, please click here.
