The sea of verbena near the Zuikuiyuan handicraft complex has attracted quite a few visitors for photographs since the onset of the summer. The complex was designed by Wang Shu, the first Chinese citizen to win a Pritzker Architecture Prize. An epitome of nature and architecture intermingling, the building has become an art creation center by the Baima Lake.


Besides verbena, the area near Baima Lake is planted with various flowers in all four seasons, which has benefited from Binjiang District’s water management measures. 17 rivers flow through the lake, which means to improve the water quality of Baima entails an overhaul of Binjiang’s entire water system. The district mapped out a plan of action to clear its 41 river courses and 70 small water bodies and has completely lifted their water quality up all from the lowest level. Measures such as cutting off sewage emission, reforestation, dredging, and introduction of the water of Qiantang River have significantly upgraded the water quality. Baima Lake has now a second-grade water quality and is among the most beautiful rivers/lakes of Zhejiang.


The 6,600 sqm verbena field will bloom till August. Visitors are advised to take buses here as there’s road construction nearby and cars are not able to drive in. Set your destination as the crossing of Huxi Road and Tianma Road, and there’s a path to the flowers for e-bikes and pedestrians.
