Lingfeng Winter-sweet and Mume Blossom Show

2016-10-19
Mume (includes winter-sweet and mume blossom), is a distinct flowering plant of China. It is related to both plum and apricot trees. Different from other flowering trees, it starts to flower in mid-winter, and the flower blooms most vibrantly during the time of the winter snow. Therefore, it is frequently depicted in Chinese art and poetry as a symbol of perseverance and hope.


Lingfeng(Ling Peak) is one of the three southeast China’s famous resorts for enjoying Winter-sweet and Mume Blossom. On its sprawling 12-hectare land are planted about 6,000 winter-sweet made up of 50 species. Every February when Mume flowers are in full bloom, a poular and awe-inspiring show boasts their delicate and colorful blooms. During this time, the air is heavy with the fragrance of Mume flower, while  Lingfeng is surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colorful Mei flowers.
