Visitors to London's Kew Gardens have been inspired by China's fascinating and colorful horticultural legacy, Earle Gale reports

When Kew Gardens reopened it s Great Pagoda in 2018, it was more than a return-to-form for one of Kew's top attractions, it was an acknowledgment of the important influence of China on British horticulture.

The 10-story Chinese-style structure , built in 1761, is a star attraction at the botanical repository in southwest London where more than 30,000 types of plant are protected and displayed and where 7 million floral samples are stored.
