This set of stamps depicts the crabapple species malus micromalus, malus honanensis, malus prunifolia and malus sieboldii.

Malus micromalus, or the midget crabapple, was Premier Zhou Enlai's favorite fruit tree.

What is the most significant is that 2018 marks the 120th anniversary of the birth of Comrade Zhou Enlai in 1898.

The set of stamps was issued to commemorate the great man.

Featuring traditional Chinese painting techniques, the stamps depict the exquisite twigs of the fruit trees.

The blossoms, buds, petals, stalks and leaves are depicted in a realistic fashion.

The off-white background highlights the elegant style of malus spectabilis.
