This is a landscape tourism resource made up of various types of vegetation, including trees, shrubs, grasses, moss, algae and other plants with scientific value. Examples are the relict plants that have survived from past geological periods, such as ginkgo, cycads, the dove tree and several historical trees, such as Zhou Bai (cypress in the Zhou Dynasty) and Tang Huai (sophora in the Tang Dynasty) as well as a variety of famous flowering and rare plants, which together form a splendid tourism resource system of plant landscapes.
