Qushui Garden

Built by the composition of grey tiles, white walls, and green bricks in the reign of Emperor Qianlong (1736-1795), Qushui Garden is one of the five major gardens planted mostly with bamboos in Shanghai. With 24 celebrated sceneries in total, the garden is known as its small and dainty, unsophisticated and dignified feature, together with the great reputation of “blazed with cherries and peach blossoms in spring, lotuses rising from the water in summer, filled with the fragrance of sweet olive in autumn, plum blossoms contending against the white snow in winter.”
