The blossoming of lotus flowers in West Lake is gradually coming to an end after the Start of Autumn. Meanwhile, water lilies with the nickname of "goddess of water" are in full blooms.


The Three Pools Mirroring the Moon scenic area is well known for its growing of this graceful aquatic plant. Unlike the lotus flowers growing near the bank of the West Lake, the Three Pools Mirroring the Moon island has smaller lakes with no waves, which are suitable for water lilies. The winding bridges over the lakes also make it easier for visitors to take a close look at the flowers.


The local gardening administration introduced more than 50 new water lily species this year, including those that won awards last year and some cultivated by the administration itself. In addition, Victoria plants of two species have unfolded their leaves. 


Moreover, the administration arranged some flowers consisting of water lilies, purple loosestrife, canna glauca, crepe myrtles, bougainvillea and plumbago auriculata at the dock of the island. Water lilies will bloom through the end of November.
