A sea of azalea shrubs is blooming in Fangniu village in Chongqing's Nan'an district, creating an amazing sight for tourists.

Every March and April, as warmer weather takes hold, the village is carpeted with massive amounts of azalea blossoms in multiple colors — red, white, pink and purple.

Some flower admirers visit the place and shoot photos of the shrubs in bloom — trying to imitate Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz.

The jungle-like environment of the village provides perfect growing conditions for azaleas, as the plant prefers living near or under trees.

Azaleas are flowering shrubs that are part of the Rhododendron genus.
