Plum trees have already started to blossom across China. In Chinese culture, the five petals of the plum blossoms symbolize happiness, good luck, longevity, and peace. The plant blooms in cold late winter and early spring. Therefore, it also stands for courage and hope.
A 600-year-old plum tree has been in full blossom at Xuanwu Lake Park, Nanjing, capital of east China's Jiangsu Province. Tourists can also appreciate plum trees in the Plum Flower Hill in Nanjing. The blooming time differs from year to year depending on the weather. However, the hill wears its best look from mid-February to mid-March.
In the library of Hong'en Temple Forest Park in Chongqing, readers can enjoy spectacular spring views. Lovely flowers also add vivid pink to the environment. In Xianfeng County, Hubei Province, plum trees have blossomed, attracting many birds and bees.
