China Camellia Museum opens in Jinhua
The China Camellia Museum opened to the public in Jinhua, Zhejiang province, on March 13. Among the vast varieties of blooming flowers in the spring, camellias are considered the most delicate.
Camellias, which are one of the 10 famous flowers in China and the city flower of Jinhua, shares the same reputation with Jinhua ham and flaky pastry as one of the city's calling cards.
With an investment of approximately 3 million yuan ($461,000), the nearly-700-square-meter China Camellia Museum has transformed some of the existing buildings in China Camellia Culture Park. The external landscape area, a special design of the museum, complements the scenery in the culture park.
The museum consists of four zones with respective focuses on the camellia's origin and evolution; development and spread; research, development, and prospects; as well as the camellia culture in China.
The museum has received donations of more than 40 calligraphy works, paintings, and inscriptions, over 100 books and precious photos, souvenir medals, as well as certificates.
