120000 square meters of flowers to bloom here in August
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- A sea of 120000 square meters of flowers will bloom on the 153-meter elevation of the river beach in the water-level fluctuation zone in Wanzhou two months later! A few days ago, according to Wanzhou District Garden Center, it was reported that with the further decline of the water level, gardeners sowed another massive wildflower mix on the mudflats of the riverfront lagoon area, and the sowing is expected to be completed by the end of this month, and a sea of gorgeous flowers will bloom from August to September.

Wanzhou is located in the heart of the Three Gorges reservoir area, and the unique water conditions of half-yearly water rise and half-yearly water fall have created a large water-level fluctuation zone. In order to beautify the bare water-level fluctuation zone and improve the ecology of the reservoir bank, since 2018, Wanzhou has started to try various greening schemes for the fluctuation zone, including cultivating wildflower combinations, planting Zhongshan fir and weeping willow, etc. Among them, the flowering landscape of the fluctuation zone has been built for 3 consecutive years, with the scale of the flowering sea expanding year by year, the variety becoming richer and the flowering period becoming longer, bringing benefits to improve the ecological environment, and enhance the urban quality significantly.
