Our Shed at Kooloora, Malabar loaded 25 November 2017



Royal Botanic gardens celebrated 200 years.

In the plant world, colour is the essential ingredient for pollination. Watch as The Calyx is transformed into an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colour in the new, free floral display Pollination.

Curated by the horticultural team at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the display features a collection of plants and flowers showcasing the role colour plays in natures magnificent act of pollination.

Garden beds of vibrant coloured orchids, daisies, gardenias and lilies are set against the backdrop of the display hero -the green wall.

The wall, the largest of its kind in Australia, standing at 6 metres high and spanning 50 metres, showcases the Pollination theme with Dicondra, Syngonium and Heuchera.
