Green Heart of Umag: 50 Crepe Myrtle Trees Planted in Humagum Park

Lauren Simmonds

In the midst of the world’s media (including TCN) being gripped by the coronavirus pandemic, every little bit of positive news is welcome. While a lot of encouraging headlines are drowned out by concerning articles about coronvirus, be they about public health or the precarious state of the global economy, there are still some that are enough to make you smile. One such story is happening in Umag’s beautiful Humagum park.

Istria, while still less talked about than its southern cousin Dalmatia, is well known for its sheer beauty. This region of Croatia boasts all the gorgeous architecture, history and coastline of Dalmatia, coupled with a booming wine growing culture and lush, fertile greenery.

On top of the wine culture for which it is recognised, Istria places a lot of emphasis on ecology and taking care of the environment. The planting of trees in Umag’s popular Humagum park is just another example of Istria’s care for its surroundings and the nature which contributes so heavily to its beauty and popularity.

As Morski writes on the 13th of April, 2020, last week, employees of the city company Komunela d.o.o. planted new Crepe myrtle trees, known for their gorgeous pink blossom along Umag’s picturesque waterfront.

A total of fifty new seedlings of this wonderful plant will adorn Umag’s beautiful Humagum park and dominate this open space with its pink flowers as the warm spring weather approaches.

This is a new phase of landscaping the so-called green heart of the city, which will certainly add to not only the beauty of the place, but also contribute to providing some much needed shade during the hot summer months.
