A purple flower sea at Gaopo town in Guiyang, Guizhou province has ushered in the most "romantic" time of the year, with millions of verbena plants in full bloom. The verbena's blooming period lasts about six to eight months and attracts a large number of tourists.

During the past month, the income of villagers working at nongjiale, or farm homestay businesses, has increased greatly, and the integration of agriculture and tourism has brought real benefits to the villagers.
