Autumn in the northwestern region of Vietnam puts on a display of white Co Lau flowers, waving in the winds with their plain but stunning beauty. The flowers, a kind of feather reed grass with the scientific name of calamagrostis acutiflora, thrive along national highways and basins of rivers.

Traditionally, the dried white Co Lau flowers were used as clean materials to produce mattresses for the elderly, pillows for children and also dowry gifts for brides in the the region.

Today, the strips of Co Lau flowers on hills, mountains or along rivers and streams are places for ethnic minority girls to enjoy the view or couples to record romantic moments in harmony with nature.

Below, DTiNews shares photos of white Co Lau flowers in the sun and beauty of Kim Thanh Village, Quang Kim Commune, Bat Xat District in Lao Cai Province:
