Imelda Grass or more popularly known as Imelda Flower could be seen sprouting all around Gensan. Legend says that it was former First Lady Imelda Marcos who introduced it here in the 70s upon noticing that the area was one hot, arid desert. This thorny grass which is also known as Imelda creeper thrives well in sandy areas and needs minimal water.

These photos were taken at the oval plaza one afternoon with the tents being readied for “Pasko Sa Gensan 2007” at the background.
