Many families go here for picnic as there is lot of open grass between trees to play. The part reserved for Chinese medical herbs and trees might be nice to those who have interest for that. Within walking distance from this garden is Black Dragon Pool.

A well deserved garden with a great feature of Camellias and other Chinese exotics, the soon to be completed hot house will have several sections of differing climatic conditions.

Flowers were at their best show time in May when we went (May,2007). For colors so full of life , a must see for those natural nature lovers. Flowers from this area are air freighted to many parts of the world . The area is somewhat like Lisse , Holland and reminds me of such for the beauty.

Spring is the best season to visit this place. Lots of beautiful tea flowers. The magnolias were also great! Will visit this place again in Spring if the opportunity arises. Admission fee was really cheap. Good value for money. A good place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Kunming City.

This is a nice part of Kunming, very family oriented. People are out picnicking, enjoying the flowers, getting their wedding photos taken, family photos, and just about everybody. It's a great place to relax too. Some of the flowers like the magnolia trees and amaryllis are spectacular and abundant.

We visited the botanical garden when the Reticulata Camellia's were in full bloom. This is an extraordinary display of colours and forms. Don't miss the greenhouse with more than 30 different species of yellow Camellia's

What an enormous disappointment. Not a knowledgeable gardener or English speaker anywhere to be found, even on a busy weekend. Herbarium - closed! Begonia House - Closed! Tropical Greenhouse - Closed! Peculiar Plant House - closed! Cactus House - Closed! Monocot park - closed! Propogation labs - derelict! No English signs anywhere, even in the exhibition hall.
