This was growing near the second crag we scouted in Huàshān. I’m not sure if it was wild or landscaped, but does it really matter; a flower is beautiful regardless, eh?
But speaking of landscaping, Chinese roads, in general, but especially the highways and major arteries leading into cities, are stunningly landscaped. I mean, we’re talking miles and miles and miles of perfectly sculpted shrubs, heaps and heaps of flowers, trees standing in lines as far as the eye can see, and perfectly manicured grass. I suppose it puts some of their 1.3 billion people to work, and it certainly gives the rest of us something beautiful to look at as we move about.
