Chinese netizens are furious at the local government of Hefei city, Anhui province, for wasting a large amount of public money, after it was founded that a big quantity of high-cost Crape Myrtle trees the government imported from Vietnam have died.
Reportedly, Heifei city constructed a forest nursery, and “brought in a hefty shipping of crap myrtle trees from Vietnam” for it last December.
The precious shrubs are an average of 100 years old, and cost as high as 400,000 RMB each tree.
Unfortunately however, the local residents have found out that the first group of trees to be planted have died, due to various reasons such as “an inappropriate transplanting season“! Check the picture above.
