[InKunming--Kunming] The most beautiful season in Kunming and around is spring when various flowers bloom and decorate the city in an artistic atmosphere. Flowers are everywhere, and here are the five best places to admire flowers.

No.1 Peonies on Shizi mountain

In Kunming, besides Tanhua temple, there is an ideal place to see peony, that is Shizi mountain located in the west of Wuding county of Chuxiong Yi Autonomous Prefecture. It is a national 4A scenic spot which is known as “the top of southwest”. It is a traditional peony planting base, which is also the largest and best peony garden in Yunnan.

Peony ornamental garden, peony culture park, and peony hill-pond garden are three scenic spots on Shizi mountain. Many rare species are planted in there. The three gardens cover an area of 200 mu (about 13.33 hectares), including more than 120 varieties with 40,000 strains of peony.

The normal flowering period of peony is from April to May. Thanks to the unique climate and environment of Shizi mountain, the peonies here usually bloom in March, which makes the mountain become the first place to see flourishing peonies in China.

Moreover, the peony in Shizi mountain is known as “the most famous peony in China” because of its high altitude environment, the earliest and longest flowering period, and the largest corolla. Every March 15th, the “Peony Festival” will be held in Shizi mountain.
