The unveiling ceremony of a wintersweet garden was held in Wuxi Plum Garden, Jiangsu province, on Jan 12. Rong Zhijian, a descendant of the Rong family, attended the ceremony.

Liu Jingjuan, a visitor, said: "My family was familiar with the Rong family. The plum garden is my favorite park."

To develop Wuxi's tourism, the Rong family donated the plum garden to the government. Funded by Rong, the wintersweet garden was built to enrich the plum garden's flower varieties and will be the largest wintersweet garden in East China.

The Wuxi New District (formerly Wuxi Hi-tech Zone) was established in 1992 and underwent administrative changes in 1995, 2002 and 2005.
