A field of pink muhly grass flowers in the riverside park of Binjiang in HangZhou city, China had to be cut down on Sunday after it was being trampled by tourists.

These flowers stay in bloom for about 2 months during autumn but those in Binjiang riverside park were destroyed 2 weeks after they started blooming.

Despite the rope barriers to enter the 10-acre of grass, tourists still enter to take photos, destroying it in the process as they stomped, walked about and laid down. One tourist even came at midnight, spotlight in hand and all, just to take a selfie by the pink field.

Zheng has spent three years tending to the pink muhly grass, which was imported from Australia. Her voice had turned hoarse from shouting at tourists. Now, all the grass is being cut down for protection and also ensuring it blooms next year.

Hangzhou is not the only place in China that has witnessed such uncivilized behavior as Chinese tourists often go to extreme lengths for selfies.
