More than 50 crape myrtle trees are accompanied by 250 crape myrtle bonsai to present a spectacular view of blooming flowers in the whole garden. Bowl lotuses are small and exquisite with bright colors and fragrant smell, which are displayed at the back garden of Yuyin Shanfang. Against the backdrop of classical Lingnan garden buildings, the exhibitions, as well as lotuses embedded into the rockery, pavilion and pond, form a poetic realm for the visitors.
