The 2-month event is highlighted by the elegant plum blossoms and wintersweet that begin to bloom from December to next February in Kunming. The event has been arranged with 6 sets of plum-related Chinese garden sculptures, uncovering the special plum culture of China.

The Black Dragon Pool Park has established a 0.7-hectare dedicated garden covering nearly a hundred plants or more than 10 species of wintersweet (calyx canthus) which has the similar florescence with plum blossoms. 

Based on the ancient plum trees since the Tang Dynasty (608-907), the Park has also set up a 350-hactare plum plantation area, with 13,000 plus grounded plants and 4,000 bonsais, making the Park one of the Top 10 Plum Gardens in China and the largest of its kind in Southwest China. To date, there have been a score of species of plums special to the Park.
