Opposite the Lotus in the Breeze at Crooked Courtyard, Flower Garden is not as popular as Taiziwan Park or the traditional Hangzhou Botanical Garden. However, it is their equal flowers and plants.
The garden was established in 1954, for producing, collecting and conserving many kinds of flowers and bonsai specimens. Today, it has around 200 species of flowers.
Orchids are a specialty of the garden, with different varieties blossoming each season. And it's something of an understatement to say the garden is a kaleidoscope of color at the moment - it's a mass of white, pink, yellow, magenta and orange blooms.
Recommendations for flower fans include the magnolias near the east gate and the bonsai area, where golden primroses and pink begonia flowers add to the spring atmosphere.
