Walk into Yuan Sen Applied Botanical Garden in Taitung to learn and be amazed by more than a thousand species of pharmaceutical plants bred by the land of Taiwan: Asiatic Pennywort, Japanese Honeysuckle, Indigenous Cinnamon Tree, Alianthus Prickly Ash, Mountain Litsea, Snake Jasmine, and Chinese Cedar, for instance. These herbs can be used for officinal remedies or health preservation. They are not merely edible vegetables but fragrance plants that can give pleasant sensations to human beings.

The Indigo Dye workshop of Zhuo Ye Cottage in Miaoli has even turned plants into arts, building an aesthetic corner where colors are added to textile fabrics like portieres, scarves, and clothes by refining natural hues with yeasts.

The sweet grasses and dyeing plants in Taiwan are foods, medicinal herbs, fragrances, and arts. The land is instinct with rich aromatic scent.
