1564971385

Have you ever seen a pair of lotus flowers growing from the same stalk? At the Old Summer Palace in Beijing, an extremely rare pinkish double lotus is about to bloom, catching tourists' attention.

Double lotus, also named Bingdi lotus, is not artificially bred but completely natural. It is said that the chance of its appearance is about one in 100,000.

In Chinese literature, the double lotus is hailed the "gentleman of the flowers", symbolizing dedication between lovers and an auspicious omen.
