Mild climate and agreeable temperatures have turned Xishuangbanna in southwest China's Yunnan Province into a kingdom of countless plant species where flowers of different shapes and colors bloom all year long.
CGTN continues its compilation of flowers that have bloomed each month throughout last year at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanic Garden.
Take a look at the May flower collection, and don't miss the blossoms in May, June, July, August, September, October, November and December.
