From now on, tourists in Zhongshan Park can enjoy not only traditional famous flowers in China such as Chinese flowering crabapples, cloves and flowering peaches, but hundreds of varieties of bulb flowers with more than 300,000 strains, including world’s famed flowers tulips and Narcissus pseudonarcissuses, especially the first appearance of the pink shearing-shape tulip “Cool Crystal”.

April is a good time to enjoy the flowers in Beijing and the Tulip Festival opens in Zhongshan Park on April 12. In 2017, Zhongshan Park carefully arranged seven thematic scenic spots, namely Welcoming Guests with Festive Air, Gold Coast, Colorful Flowers, Joyful Forest, Spring Approaching, Flowers Blossoming and Sea of Flowers in the Spring Forest. The beautiful tulips can be seen everywhere on the main tour route, especially in the north road area around the flowerbeds where more than 60 kinds of rare tulips with different blossom periods will flower. The person in charge of the park said, “These are rarer varieties or the kinds that were planted in the park for the first time.” For instance, the giant tulip “Sunrise” which is larger than the ordinary kind by 1/4 and a petal of which is equivalent to the size of the palm of the hand; the dark parrot-shape tulip “Black Parrot” and the double deep red “Ecstasy” with multiple flower heads are all rare varieties. In addition, tourists can also enjoy the “Cool Crystal” which is shown for the first time. This kind of tulip is double pink with the rare shearing type around the petal edge.
