Lilac flower blooms to fill South Korean stadium
The blossoms of Lilac, a tropical species native to South Korea, are in full bloom.
The blooms were photographed in a Seoul stadium on Sunday.
The blossoms were seen in a stadium in Seoul, South Korea.
South Korea is a popular tourist destination, and the blossoms have been on display in stadiums throughout the country.
After years of being kept in the shade and under quarantine, the blossomes are now being seen by millions of people.
While South Korea has no restrictions on the species, it’s been prohibited from selling the flowers.
This year’s blooms are the first to be seen in public since South Korea implemented a blanket ban in February.
