POL­LI­NA­TION

Where Sydney - - WHERE NOW | WHAT’S ON -

Show­cas­ing the as­tound­ing hues of a va­ri­ety of na­tive and non-na­tive flow­ers, the Royal Botanic Gar­den Syd­ney’s new “Pol­li­na­tion” flo­ral dis­play cre­atively il­lus­trates na­ture’s mir­a­cle of pol­li­na­tion. The Ca­lyx’s in­ter­na­tion­ally-recog­nised green wall comes to life with words and im­ages il­lus­trat­ing how pollen is dis­persed, while a 50-me­tre flowerbed grouped into dif­fer­ent colour schemes of pur­ple, red and cream re­flects the role colours play in pol­li­na­tor at­trac­tion. In ad­di­tion to the dis­play, the new at­trac­tion fea­tures a va­ri­ety of flower-themed events, in­clud­ing tours and pol­li­na­tion sto­ries, mu­sic, sci­ence and ed­u­ca­tional events, work­shops, pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hi­bi­tions and mi­cro­scopes and colouring sta­tions for the kids.
