On the left side of the walkway from the Memorial Hall to the gate by Xinyi Road and Hangzhou South Road is the Native Cherry Blossom Area, where more than 20 Taiwan Cherry trees, also known as the Bellflower Cherry, have been planted.

The flowers are bell-shaped, pendulous, and scarlet to pink with long stalks, and their flowering period starts around the first half of February every year, with new leaves growing after flowering. As their name would imply, they are Taiwan’s most iconic cherry species.
