This remarkable new 207-hectare botanical garden was opened in 2010 as part of the Shanghai Expo. Set amidst the fast-developing suburbs of Shanghai (population 25 million), it provides both a green resource for the city and a new centre for plant science. Created through collaboration between Shanghai's Municipal Government, the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the State Forestry Administration, Chenshan Botanical Garden has a particular focus on East China's highly urbanised environment.
The beauty of landscape is centered around mountains and water. A stone can reflect magnificent mountains, and a spoonful of water can reflect broad rivers and lakes. Landscape arts condense the vast world. Modern landscape takes many forms, such as yards, playgrounds, gardens, parks, botanical gardens, zoos, amusement parks, and with development of garden science, nowadays also including forest parks, squares, scenic areas, natural reserves, national parks, and holiday resorts etc. Today's landscape is not only appreciated for leisure and recreation, but has multiple functions including environment beautification, climate regulation, social service, ecology protection etc. Landscaping compensates relative isolation between men and nature, building a "second nature" for people.
The Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam is a modern botanical garden where current issues between people and plants are central. At the same time, both the rich history and the intimate nature of the garden are preserved and visible.

The staff of the Hortus Botanicus want people of all ages to enjoy the beauty and diversity of plants from all over the world. We want to contribute to increasing their knowledge and encourage them to discover the importance of plants for the world.

The International Waterlily Collection has been designated by the International Waterlily & Water Gardening Society as the premiere collection of waterlilies in existence.

His name is Ken Landon. Ken is only able to display about 1/2 of 1% of the collection each year so there is always something new and wondrous to see.
