The Plum Garden is found up the Hushan Hill in the southwest corner of Wuxi. As its name suggests, the garden is planted all over with plum trees.
In its early days it was the property of Xu Dianyi, a metropolitan graduate of the late Qing Dynasty. In 1912, the Rongs acquired the garden and had thousands of plum trees planted in it.
While plum trees serve to beautify the hillside of the garden, the hillside itself looks unique as it is covered all over with plum trees. Pavilions and terraces are laid out with good taste along with a pagoda on the premises. In early spring the plum trees come in full bloom, while in mid-autumn the entire garden is permeated with the heady fragrance of sweet scented osmanthus trees.
