Meng Chang, the last king of the Later Shu State in the Five Dynasties, ahd a preference for famous flowers, especially hibiscus flowers. He orderded to have hibiscus trees planted all round the city wall of the capital Chengdu. And personnel was appointed particularly for tree caring. This practice has been passed on to later generations, who have planted the hibiscus trees all around. In each autumn the city was a sea of blooming flowers, with the air filled with thick fragrance.
