Botanical garden in Songjiang

CHENSHAN Botanical Garden, which features Asia's biggest greenhouse, officially opens today in Songjiang District.

The botanical garden has already been open on a trial basis and has received good reviews from tourists from both home and abroad.

The greenhouse houses more than 3,000 breeds of plants from all over the world, some of which are rare, the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Administrative Bureau said yesterday.

The greenhouse is divided into three parts, one for rare plants, another for sand plants and the third for tropical plants.

The entire botanical garden features more than 9,000 breeds of plants.

The Shanghai government invested more than 2.1 billion yuan (US$319 million) in the project.
