Early Start to Ox-eye Daisy Season in Hanoi

The ox-eye daisy field, also known as Chrysanthemum Japonense, in Long Bien District, offers a picturesque backdrop for Autumn photoshoots for both Hanoi locals and tourists.


Every November, the Thao Nguyen Flower Garden on the banks of the Red River in Hanoi has become a must-visit destination for ox-eye daisy lovers. This year, the flowering season came early, with the flowers in full bloom since late October.

The 2,000-square-meter flower garden features more than 10,000 daisies planted in midsummer and in full bloom in late fall and early winter.

According to the owner of the flower garden, the daisies here are sown in a cold nursery. The young plants are then nurtured for four to five months to mature and produce the most brilliant flowers.

The most favorable time to photograph the daisy in the gardens is early in the morning and late in the afternoon, when the sunlight is not too intense and allows for more harmonious and fairly bright photos.
