  The 2018 National Day Chrysanthemum Exhibition was launched on September 26 with the theme of “The Fragrance of Chrysanthemum Prevailed the Garden-Ecological Harmony”. Upon entering the Lanzhou Botanical Garden, one could see a green sculpture composed of chrysanthemums and flower stands presenting a sea of flowers surrounded by clusters of Xuan Ya (a species of chrysanthemum) chrysanthemums. Thanks to the efforts of the technicians of Lanzhou Botanical Garden, these chrysanthemums originally to bloom after the National Day were now in full bloom, exuding an intoxicating and unique fragrance.

  In this year’s exhibition, different varieties of chrysanthemums were arranged in various forms in areas covering two-thirds of the botanical garden, such as the entrance, Dunhuang Park, main entrance plaza, central pedestrian walk, plank road connecting the two artificial lakes. By doing so, a live picture of ecological harmony was presented to all visitors who would be greeted with the intoxicating smell of chrysanthemum. Apart from this, 10 flower stands and a pair of large chrysanthemum-modeled dragons at the gate welcomed tourists from all directions and guided them to each exhibition area; the three 3D mascot dogs at the entrance of Dunhuang Garden gave the flower show a sense of vibrancy, intelligence and vitality; three arches and the lotus in the pond at the main entrance of the Lotus Pond Square presented a perfect combination of movement and stillness; the waterway near the two ponds and the water planks were refreshing; the chrysanthemum boat in the artificial lake was particularly attractive against the backdrop of the lake. It is understood that this chrysanthemum exhibition displayed more than 300 species of chrysanthemum including Xiao Xuanya Chrysanthemum that is cultivated in this particular garden. There were more than 50,000 pots of chrysanthemums and 40 groups of chrysanthemum-arranged arts.

  Over the past few years, Lanzhou Botanical Garden has improved its environment and provided more facilities to tourists by road construction, botanical park construction, water route redesigning and square renovation projects. Visitors have doubled year by year.
