Due to the large area and the complex topography and climate. a great deal of wild ornamental plants are still hidden in the depth of forests and on the highland plateaus--places difficult to approach by man. In the Three N Regions only, there are 51 species of Rhododendron, 27 of Lilium, 83 of Rosa, 30 of Iris, 40 of Clematis, etc., yet to be explored and utilized. Aiming at this, we made extensive introduction of plants in general and intensive introduction of certain families and genera in particular, with good results. At present we have in our living collection 12 species of Clematis, 24 of Rosa, 13 of Lilium, 10 of Iris, 8 of Tulip, 6 of Aquilegia, 10 of Thalictrum, 20 of Gentiana, 80 of ferns, 40 of Begonia, 50 of the Araceae. Seed germination tests, micropropagation, breeding for new varieties and other experiments and researches have been carried out on many of these plant groups.
