The lotus flower, one of China's famous flowers, has been deeply loved by Chinese people. Lakes and ponds in many parts of China are suitable for the growth of lotus plants. The lotus flower, which is bright in color, blooms in the early morning and closes at night in summer, with the flowering lasting up to two or three months, attracting visitors from all over the country. The lotus has multiple uses, including purifying water, reducing pollution and improving the environment, as well as greening water surfaces and beautifying gardens. The flower is characterized by its abilities to tolerate intense sun exposure and emerge pure and clean from the murky water, thus symbolizing purity and elegance. So it is often used as a metaphor for a person's noble character and has been a main subject for poets and painters throughout history. Places with lotus flowers in full bloom are also frequented by many photography enthusiasts.
