During the Spring and Autumn period, there was a big and prosperous country called "Chu" (also can be called Jinchu) stood on the south part of the Chinese mainland. It’s a mysterious and highly civilized country. A lot of antiquities of the state of Chu which have been discovered in recent years, have provided us precious first hand files and documents of this great country. The Romanticism Art of Chu and it’s witch culture is really fascinating. A lot of researchers put their heart and soul into the study of the culture of Chu. By doing this, many details and different aspects of this great culture have been revealed.This article is based on the exploration of the plant patterns of Jinchu. Compare to the plant patterns in other period or in other states, the plant patterns of Jinchu is a subject that most people do not familiar with. And the plant patterns of Jinchu takes a little part in the patterns of Jingchu. This is the background of our exploration of the plant patterns of Jinchu.We started our exploration with the method of "textual research→classifying→analyzing→comparing→extend exploring". This article first made a brief introduction about the state of Chu and it’s culture. Then search useful information among huge articles and documents in order to get enough first hand information about the plant patterns of Jingchu. Try to analyze and classify them. Then make a research on it’s constructing feature including it’s subject, content and art feature. Further more, we have explored the internal spirits of the Jingchu culture which could be seen through the plant pattern of Jingchu.After all this work, we try to compare the Jinchu plant patterns with plant patterns of other period of times in order to find it’s feature and makes them impressive.What’s more, we’ve also explored the theories and practical uses of Jinchu plant patterns in the field of modern design such as graphic design, industrial design and interior design. Some practical application is included as an explaination to those theories.
