Hangzhou Botanical Garden is famous for the scene of Lingfeng Tanmei, which literally means enjoying Mume Blossoms along Lingfeng Peak. As we know, Hangzhou Botanical Garden is home to over 5,000 aged plum trees made up of 50 species. Standing upright and gracefully, they are mainly distributed along Lingfeng Peak, which is a prominent part of this park. When winter comes, these winter-sweet plum trees will burst out dazzling blossoms in hue of scarlet red, pink white and even green and black. During this time, the air is heavy with the fragrance of Mume flower, while Lingfeng is surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colorful Mei flowers.
