Sakhalin chose cherry in the Alley of Russia
On November 1, the results of the competition of green symbols of the country "Alley of Russia" were announced. Almost eight thousand islanders voted for the plant that can represent the Sakhalin region. Of these, 3066 gave the first place to Sakhalin cherry. She almost from the first days seized the leadership and did not give up her positions until the end of the voting.
Sakhalin cherry, or sargent, in Russia is common on Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands, as well as in the Primorsky Territory. Under favorable conditions, the tree grows up to 18-22 m. A beautiful ornamental plant conquers with its soft, delicate beauty - during the flowering period it is covered with flowers with pale pink petals 10-17 mm long.
So the Sakhalin cherry will become the green symbol of the region in Sevastopol or Moscow. As you know, the organizers of the competition are planning to break the "Alleys of Russia" for the Victory anniversary - May 9, 2015 in these two cities.
The Alley of Russia campaign was initiated by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation and the Nature Protection Fund. Initially, it was planned to plant only one alley - in Simferopol, in honor of the reunification of Crimea with the Russian Federation. Now the organizers are talking about creating park zones in several cities.
Any resident of Russia had the opportunity to vote for the plant, which, in his opinion, could represent his region before 31 October. According to the results of the voting, it is clear that the Russians selected those representatives of the green world who are most typical for the region and in principle form the familiar flora of the country. For example, Muscovites chose an oak tree, in the Leningrad region they chose alder, and in the Altai region the red viburnum was considered to be the symbol of the region.
