    About this book

Since ancient times, plum blossom, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum have enjoyed great favor among the Chinese and been honored as the Four Gentlemen. From the emperors, noblemen and literati down to the common folk, people not only love planting them, but seek to sing their praises through poetry, calligraphy and painting. Aside from their graceful bearing and brilliant color, plum blossom, orchid. bamboo and chrysanthemum also embody the fine characters pursued by Chinese, especially, by literati in all ages, which are implication, nobility, self-reliance and fortitude. With various illustrations, this book introduces the origin of the four plants, as well as their implied meaning in Chinese painting and poetry, hence leading readers to feel their expressive and rendering power in traditional Chinese culture.
