A pink sea of muhlenbergia capillaris, also known as the hairawn muhly, in the Dongbuzhou Changtan Park in Haimen district, Nantong has recently become a popular tourist destination, local media reported.

The pink flowers, which blossom from mid-September to mid-November, attracted nearly 10,000 tourists to the park during the eight-day National Day holiday.

The park, which stretches five kilometers along the northern bank of the Yangtze River and cost nearly 100 million yuan ($14.5 million) to build, officially opened on April 26. 

In addition to the pink landscape, the park also features a 20,000-square meter "flower valley" which is covered with galsang flowers, salvia farinacea, zinnia and more. There are two flowering periods in the year - from May to June and from October to November.
