The city flower of Hangzhou

TANG Dynasty (AD 618-907) poet Bai Juyi once wrote a poem about a beautiful scene of golden flowers and his hopes of returning to Hangzhou to gaze upon blooming osmanthus once again.

Little did he know that his poem would lure streams of tourists to Hangzhou every autumn as they also seek to look upon the gorgeous flowers. In 1983, osmanthuswas designated as the city flower of Hangzhou.

Since the flowers only bloom for a short period, it’s best to seize the day and get out and smell them before they are gone. The peak time to see the flowers is usually between late September and early October.
