trees in the Garden.  Now the flowering oriental cherry trees are bursting their buds. Most varieties
produce light pink to white blossoms, but there are also some cherry trees with dark pink, yellow or
green blossoms. Furthermore, the color of some varieties' cherry blossoms may change while they
are in bloom. For example, a blossom may open as a white flower and change color to pink over the
course of a few days.
    The white blossoms as white as snow, it gives us beauty of purity. the pink blossoms is just like
the young girl¡¯s bashful face, which symbolize the beauty of youth.
    In 1985, Hunan Provincial Forest Botanic Garden began to introduce a range of Oriental Cherry
varieties into the Garden from Japan and other provinces in the country . Now there are about more
than 60 varieties with an area of more than 20 ha. It turns into the largest place to appreciate Cherry
blossom in China. Each Spring attracts lots of tourists to flock into the Garden to have a look at such
surreal beauty of the cherry blossom.
    Holding your lover's hands, you will fall into a romantic country, walking around the trail beside the
cherry blossom lake of the Garden you will feel an odour of romantic, as in a dream and in the paradise.
