The Summer’s Rising Stars… 2017-06-27
Summer, known for its sweltering heat, is also the time for us to witness a number of rising stars.  Growing up fast from a number of Hangzhou’s parks are an array of colourful flowers and plants that, before it gets too hot, are here to keep you firmly rooted.


Prince Bay Park (太子湾公园)

With the West Lake Music Festival still hot in people’s minds, Prince Bay Park has already put on another show entitled blossoming Chinese roses.

Prince Bay Park was once the chosen burial place for two princes of the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) but is now a floral bed for blankets of seasonal flowers. Even though the tulip exhibition, a popular attraction for 20 years, has since been moved to Huiyin Korean Temple, Prince Bay Park can once again glow in the heat - in a sea of China’s Roses.

This year many new species of rose have been introduced and with a rainbow of colours on show they form a colourful mosaic, attracting both the sunlight and a number of visitors from around the world.

Jiangyangfan Eco Park (江洋畈)

Jiangyangfan Eco Park is similar to Xixi National Wetland Park in that you can be at one with nature. However whereas Xixi National Wetland Park is a natural wetland, Jiangyangfan Eco Park only came into life after six years of being the home for all of the West Lake’s silt. However with a number of seeds having sprouted over the years - this park is now packed with willow trees and wetland plants. A number of new plants were also introduced into Jiangyangfan Eco Park which includes corn poppy, calliopsis and German Iris.
