Canna indica flowers (美人蕉), commonly known as Indian shot, African arrowroot, edible canna or purple arrowroot, are in full bloom in an 8,000-square-meter field in Loucun Wetland Park. The flowers come in beautiful and exotic yellow, orange, pink or red blossoms, and sometimes have spots or flames on them, giving the plants a very elegant appearance.

The Hilltop Rose Garden is separate from the older 8,000-square-meter Rose Garden next to Huami Lake (花蜜湖) inside the park. According to the park administration, some flowers in the old rose garden have been trimmed, while roses in the new garden are in full bloom.
