A Hadleigh based project to pro­mote the art and gar­den­ing of Sir Cedric Mor­ris, who lived and worked in the town, has won the pres­ti­gious Fin­nis Scott Foun­da­tion Botan­i­cal Art Award. The award – the high­est pos­si­ble ac­co­lade given for botan­i­cal art – was made to Coun­cil­lor Dr Siân Daw­son, a botan­i­cal il­lus­tra­tor who in­spired and co-or­di­nated a group of botan­i­cal artists to il­lus­trate a Flo­ri­legium of the bearded irises bred by Sir Cedric Mor­ris. It con­sists of 27 botan­i­cal paint­ings that ac­cu­rately record each of the cul­ti­vated va­ri­eties of iris, painted by the coun­try’s lead­ing RHS botan­i­cal artists.
