Colorful flowers bloom on SW China plateau

Mount Siguniang or Mount Four Sisters, located in southwest China's Sichuan Province, is a National Scenic Area and dubbed the "Oriental Alps" for its rich biodiversity. 

Many precious and beautiful plants grow on Mount Siguniang. Plants that can survive on the plateau are generally short in stature. Most of them have hairy stems and leaves, and strong and flexible root systems that penetrate the cracks in rocks and absorb nutrients and water in the coarse soil. They usually grow slowly and have small leaves which help save water consumption and adapt to the harsh environment on the plateau.

In summer, many plants bloom with brightly colored flowers, bringing liveliness and loveliness to Mount Siguniang.
