Visiting the Chinese gardens during your China vacation,  plum blossom, orchid, chrysanthemum, bamboo, and pine often meet your eyes. Plant is one of important elements for building a Chinese garden, and those I mention are the most popular plants.

The plum blossom is one of the most important aspects of a Chinese garden, as it represents renewal and strength of will.

Orchid is used to stand for noble spirit, purity, patriotism, and faithful love.

The chrysanthemum is used to symbolize splendor, luster and “the courage to make sacrifices for a natural life”.

Bamboo was used in every traditional Chinese garden. This is because bamboo represents a strong but resilient character.

Often pine is used to represent longevity, persistence, tenacity and dignity.


In Chinese history, pine, bamboo and plum blossom are called the “three friends in cold winter”. They are the symbol for noble character in Chinese traditional culture and are famous for their tenacious vitality.

When you plan your China trip, just choose one Chinese garden to enjoy the special culture of the most popular plants used in Chinese gardens.
