    hi,I'm a graduate student of beijing forestry university, China, majoring in horticulture, and this is my first post. Because of bad english, I don't konw what to say about. Maybe somebody of you has ever been to China or know something about Chinese plants .so why don't we say something about it? Tell us your opinion about chinese plants,as well as your feeling of it.
    I don't know whether this post will comply with the forum's rule. If not, please delete it and I will find other subject to post later.
    Thanks.

    Yes Bud, you are welcome to post on the forums. This is a global forum, so we understand that English is not everyone's first language. Your English is good, so not a problem. China has a great history of horticulture and has introduced many valuable agricultural and medicinal plants to the world. We certainly welcome your contributions.

    There are plenty of Chinese trees grown in British gardens. Examples from the Beijing area include Pinus bungeana, Pinus tabuliformis, Juniperus chinensis, Platycladus orientalis, and many more. Also lots from other regions of China, particularly the mountains in the southwest (Sichuan, Yunnan) - these grow better here than trees from Beijing as the climate is more similar

    Thank everyone here to encourage me. drichard12, I now residing in Beijing,a northern city of china. Because of the cold winter here, there are no Citrus trees which can grow in the open air.Just as millet has said that Citrus is one of the plants that is native to southern China. Even if it grows in northern china, the fruit is unable to eat and it must be grown in container.

    Ni3 hao3 is roughly equal to "Hello"

    As for woody climbers, there are many, though I'm not sure what might grow in Beijing. Perhaps Hydrangea anomala subsp. petiolaris? gusanocomemuerto, if you get the chance, be sure to visit the David C. Lam Asian Garden at UBC - woody climbers are some of the highlights of the collection.

    I'd prefer if the conversation was in English, as a courtesy to the 90%+ of readers who would likely be viewing this thread.
