At Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden, elegant tulips of various colors are in full bloom, making a dramatic impression.

In the garden, many types of spring flowers compete for beauty and attraction, but tulips stand out for the ocean of color they create and the way they are planted.

This year, 48 tulip varieties are on display, an increase of seven varieties compared with that in 2021. Mixed-color planting and interplanting methods were utilized in addition to standard single-color planting methods to produce a colorful and multi-layer landscape. Tulips can be seen in the garden's flower borders and the Chenshan Impression Flower Bed.

The layout of tulips at the Chenshan Impression Flower Bed, which is located near the Green Theater at Gate II, is based on a giant leaf figure and coupled with the undulating terrain. Beautiful and colorful patterns were created in the garden with eight varieties of tulips in red, pink, yellow, orange and other colors. The area was once a popular place for tourists to take pictures.

Tulips can also be found in the square outside Gate I, along the line from Gate I's battery station to the Children's Garden Station, along the main tour line's flower borders, and near the Bamboo Garden's flower border.

Tulips are paired with other flowers such as violets, hibiscus, and kale in the above places. Beautiful Apelton, Shy Apelton, Daydream, Jimmy, and Golden Oxford tulips, as well as blossoming hibiscus dispersed around the Bamboo Garden, are braided into stunning "flower carpets" in the Bamboo Garden area.

Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden is a popular place to admire flowers in spring. The garden is located in the Shanghai Sheshan National Tourist Resort in Shanghai's Songjiang district and covers an area of 207 hectares, making it the largest botanical garden in East China. It is a national 4A-level scenic spot.

Using innovative planting methods, tulips add beauty to the landscape of Shanghai Chenshan Botanical Garden. [Photo/WeChat ID: sheshanlvyou]
