The plum blossom, a flower that has been grown for more than 3,000 years, usually blooms during winter and the Shanghai Botanical Garden is one of the best places in the city to view it.

Some plum blossom varieties in the garden have already begun to blossom in recent days, about seven to 10 days earlier than last year. More than 80 types of plum blossoms have been collected by the garden.

Experts have predicted that the flower will likely be at its peak during Spring Festival this year as the low temperatures will result in a slow and long blooming process.
