World Horticultural Expos In China
http://hubpages.com/hub/World-Hortic...Expo-2011-Xian

Two other cities in the People's Republic of China have hosted the World Horticultural Expo previously.

Kunming (Yunnan Province) hosted the event back in 1999. This was themed as:

Man and Nature, marching into the 21st century

The site is still extant and is used for a local expo every year, currently in October. The site is noted for its topiaries as well as its Bamboo Garden, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Garden and Bonsai Garden.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shenyang (Liaoning Province) then hosted the event in 2006. This was themed:

man live in harmony with nature

The main features were a huge (125 metre tall) lily-shaped sculpture and over 3500 different varieties of roses.


Qingdao (Shandong Province) is due to keep the tradition alive and will host the event in 2014.

I absolutely love this picture. It showcases the building so perfectly. Pretty clever for a horticultural expo.
