Sitting by the picturesque East Lake of Wuhan, the 70-hectare Wuhan Botanical Garden was established in 1956 for the study of plant resources in central China and water plants in inland China. The garden is divided into a dozen or so special gardens for the cultivation of 4,000 or so kinds of plants. It is the largest center in central China for the preservation of plants.

It only took about a half-hour to get there by bus from our apartment. It is located this side of the main city center so it is not necessary to cross the main bridge into the worst part of the city traffic. Most of the information signs were also in English which was great. Much of the garden is located along the shore of East Lake so there were many walkways and paths to follow through scenic areas.

Not a lot to say about the place other then there were more plants to see than a person could take in in one day! The variety is huge so I just will let you look at the photos. I am not a plant person and didn't keep track of what anything was! It was tempting to buy one of the many plants they were for sale at the gift shop but we both know that any green thing we have in our apartment won't last more than a few weeks at the most! We came away with a couple of wall hangings instead...
