Fall flower exhibition at garden

    An autumn flower exhibition will inject fresh color into Shanghai Botanical Garden in Xuhui District starting tomorrow.

    The exhibition has four sections, with a main display area covering 15 hectares. It will run through October 27.

    An area dedicated to the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China displays 11 varieties of red Chinese hibiscus and seven varieties of bougainvillea. More than 20 bonsai works will also be showcased.

    Ten courtyard landscapes and more than 100 chrysanthemum landscapes will take the spotlight. The exhibition also includes 62 varieties of aromatic plants such as rosemary, mint and basil.

    Horticulturists at the garden are also presenting a number of eco-friendly greenery installations made from waste plants, such as fallen leaves and dead wood.

    An exhibition of about 1,200 shade plants, such as begonia and moss, are also part of the display. Other activities include a science popularization exhibition themed on Chinese herbal medicine and a photo exhibition on environmental protection.
