Enjoy clean Daegu with chrysanthemums at the Daegu Arboretum!

Daegu Arboretum hosts a chrysanthemum exhibition from October 30 (Sat) to November 14 (Sun), 2021


For 16 days, from October 30 (Sat) to November 14 (Sun), Daegu Arboretum will exhibit 15,000 works of chrysanthemums at the arboretum and Dongdaegu Plaza.

Daegu Arboretum is holding the “2021 Chrysanthemum Exhibition” to provide exciting new things to see for the people who are tired from the long-term COVID pandemic, while also promoting citizens to take part in measures for carbon neutrality to solve climate change and environmental problems.


Under the theme of “Daegu Arboretum Supports Daegu, a Leading Carbon-Neutral City,” the chrysanthemum exhibition will display a variety of sculptures of animals and plants, including “Dodalsu,” an otter character that symbolizes clean Daegu, “Eagle,” Daegu’s bird, and “Daegu Arboretum of Breath, Water and Forest,” to inform the public of the importance of the arboretum and Daegu as a clean city.


In addition, in the Dongdaegu Plaza, where works will be exhibited to alleviate the concentration of visitors in the arboretum, 17 eco-friendly symbolic animal and plant sculptures, such as trees and otters will be displayed along with a number of photo zones for the visitors to experience the beauty and importance of nature. At the same time, the city plans to encourage citizens to participate in carbon-neutral lifestyle in their daily lives by promoting carbon neutrality guidelines and action plans.


Meanwhile, the chrysanthemum exhibition will be held throughout the arboretum to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, allowing people to observe social distancing. Those who wish to volunteer for the exhibition will be able to help with parking and social distancing during the exhibition period.


The chrysanthemum exhibition, where chrysanthemums that have been carefully cultivated by Daegu Arboretum staff over the past year will be transformed into beautiful works, is expected to increase the public’s interest in the beauty and plants of Daegu Arboretum. 


In addition, during the chrysanthemum exhibition, the “Daegu Orchid Association[KHTC1]  Autumn Exhibition” displaying hundreds of rare oriental orchids will be held for two days from October 30 (Sat) to 31 (Sun), offering even more sights to see for the visitors.


"Through the Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition, we hope that people who have been exhausted by the COVID-19 pandemic for a long time can take some time off and enjoy the nature with the scent of autumn chrysanthemums,” remarked Daegu Mayor Kwon Young-jin remarked. “I hope that it can also induce people to voluntarily participate in practicing carbon neutrality."


As there is concern about traffic congestion during the chrysanthemum exhibition, he urged prospective visitors to use public transportation as much as possible.
