There’re more than 100 varieties of cold-resistant water lilies at Hangzhou Botanical Garden. All of them are in full bloom now. Unlike lotuses, which are mostly pink, water lilies are of multiple colors, including red, white, yellow and tertiary colors.

However, cold-resistant water lilies have a peculiar feature. Their petals would close up at night. That’s how they get the nickname “sleeping beauty”. You’d better choose a sunny morning.
