In pictures: year-end review of the blossoms brightening Xishuangbanna
Mild climate and agreeable temperatures have turned Xishuangbanna in southwest China's Yunnan Province into a kingdom of countless plant species where flowers of different shapes and colors bloom all year long.
Today, we continue with the compilation of flowers that have bloomed each month throughout this year at Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanic Garden.
