The star jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) is also known as the windmill jasmine because of its shape. The resplendent white and pale-yellow flowers bring not only a visual feast but also a sense of tranquility and comfort. 

In the soft glow of the setting sun, the flowers shimmer like stars, casting a unique charm over the urban landscape.

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the windmill jasmine also plays a significant role in promoting a healthier environment by absorbing harmful gases in the air.

Lishui is being transformed into a haven of romance and beauty, with the blooming windmill jasmine serving as a symbol of nature's grace and serenity.
