[Photo/CNTV]Fifteen parks across Shanghai are celebrating the most mythical of flowers—the lotus.Although the citys promotional campaign is new, Guyi Garden in Nanxiang has a history of more than 400 years and has been organizing a lotus show for the past three years.This year is the first time particularly precious species of lotus flowers are on display. Some came from overseas such as Thailand and the US. Others were cultivated by local botanists. Some high school students said it is a good place to take a break after the college entrance exams.This year, the Jiading District garden has six beautiful lotus scenes.Visitors also have the opportunity to make flower arrangements using lotus seedpods. Over the next month and half, the lotus flowers will be blossoming at 15 parks in total, including Peoples Park, Yangpu Park, Guilin Park and Shanghai Haiwan National Forest Park.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page8.03KRelated ArticlesLotus flower festival opens in ZhanjiangBreathtaking lotus in southwest ChinaLotus root industrial park attracts visitors in South ChinaJiading kicks off annual water lily and lotus showLets admire beauty of lotus flowers in KunshanTagsShanghai lotus Jiading DistrictPhotoPorcelain capital Dehua inspires artists at home and abroadIntl students attend graduation ceremony at TianjinFuture of Great Wall in Hebei province looks bleakChinese “Water Town” introduced in Expo Milan 2015Thousands celebrate 4,142 birthday of Yu the Great in SW ChinaCrop drying during raining season in Eastern China ArtFilmCelebrityFashionFoodTravelPottery artists mold their dreams at JingdezhenStunning images of devout Tibetan Buddhist pilgrimsPorcelain capital Dehua inspires artists at home and abroad8 best museums in Beijing for kidsUN displays Chinese actress Gong Lis portrait at exhibitExhibition traces history of shanshui landscapesPiecing together rendered realitiesCreative art works use recycled materialsArtist paints in cave studio for 30 yearsGlories of imperial Russia on displaySinger-turned-artist tunes into works with help from Da VinciWelcome inside my headHomegrown smash hitsPress confrence for movie Only You held in BeijingShowstopperCCTV tries new outreach through reality showBox office rallies to a ready-made heroFine-tuning the toonsSong of Tiny Times Series Arouses ControversySouth Korean films bloom in Chinese marketChinese cartoon about US Flying Tigers to air on TVFiction film triggers friction amid Chinese TaoistsOnline retailers major contributors to Chinas booming box officeThe Voice of China 4 returns with Jay ChouZhang Ziyi poses for Vogue magazineShu Qi graces fashion magazineSK actress Jun Ji-hyun expecting first childActor Zhang Lin sentenced for sheltering others for drugsSwift-Perry feud rumor confirmedTop 20 kung fu stars in ChinaActor Jing Boran elected UN-Habitat AmbassadorEntertainment weekly photos: July 11 – 17Maroon 5s Shanghai concert canceledGangnam Style star Psys Rolls Royce crashes into bus in SE ChinaDepps wife faces jail, fines for smuggling dogs into AustraliaSinger Jay Chou welcomes baby girlDonatella Versace Haute Couture F/W 2015/2016Decoding the China fixationChinese designers to join this years WOW competitionJean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture F/W 2015/16Elie Saab Haute Couture F/W 2015/16Fashion briefsFast fashion resistorHighlights of Hong Kong Fashion WeekShanghai Tang reveals its new collectionChanel takes fashionistas to the casino at Haute Couture showGiorgio Armani Haute Couture F/W 2015/16Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture F/W 2015/16Missing links?A mania for meatFrench food and culture festival featured at Justine’sExpat brings bites of Switzerland to BeijingSmall land, big tasteTen most popular bars in BeijingTaiwan Culinary Exhibition held in TaipeiTempting diners to good health with good foodThe sweet smell of food & flowersUnraveling the mystique of the Chinese banquetSurvey affirms locals love of hotpot, with ox stomach voted most popularEating at home: A growing challenge in ChinaTop 10 most beautiful terraces in ChinaMountain paradiseGlimpses of Lhasas holiday seasonTop 10 destinations for female travelersTop 10 seldom-seen views around the worldQuanzhou charmsYunnan, a travel heavenCity of SpringsMorning sun showers snow-covered Great WallMixing old with new in central Vietnam2013 Top 10 Tourism Destinations Editors PicksColor in the Forbidden City on WeiboOnline retailers major contributors to Chinas booming box officeHot wordsPalace MuseumEasy TalkChinese Valentines DayGaokaoStart of AutumnCulture InsiderTop 10sTeaDragon Boat FestivalChinese at CannesVideoEasy Talk: Directions for a productive gap yearDiplomats show their love for Asia Arts FestivalEasy Talk Special: A world of magicColumnsRaymond Zhou:X-Ray
