There are not too many towns around the world that have a holiday dedicated to flowers, even less so a rare variety that manages to flower when few other plants can – despite the winter and cold.
This rare flowering tree is the remarkable mimosa, in addition to the no less beautiful camellia, which also flowers in February. It remains unclear why the mimosa does so well and is so widespread in Herceg Novi specifically, where it can be seen as waves of yellow flying high in the gardens and slopes around the Riviera.
Strong and proud, it puts forth its scent even in the most merciless of winter conditions, creating a magical atmosphere that every guest from Europe and the world over who has been in our town in February and March will fondly remember. Why don’t you come too to experience this unique winter phenomenon, and enjoy flowers budding and blooming in the coldest time of year?
