Cherry Blossom Campus
March 14, Wuhan, Hubei Province: Tourists enjoy cherry blossoms at Wuhan University. The university opened online ticketing for blossom-watching this year on March 13. Tickets for the next two days sold out on the first day they were offered as well.
Wuhan University, with a history of more than 120 years, is famed as one of the most beautiful universities in China, largely due to its annual Cherry Blossom Festival. The prime blooming season is the week around March 20. The first cherry trees on campus were introduced from Japan. Over the time, more cherry trees were introduced through other channels and replenished, so the number of trees has increased to more than 1,000, with four botanical species and more than a dozen subspecies.
