Celebrate Spring at the Floral Showhouse

This season, our horticultural team drew inspiration from the 2018 Pantone® Colour of the Year for this season’s Spring Display at the Floral Showhouse. Running from January 19 through to May 6, the Spring Display was inspired by the 2018 colour of the year, Ultra Violet, which Pantone describes as “inventive and imaginative”. Bursting with vibrant shades of pink and purple, the Spring Show incorporates kalanchoe, cyclamen and cineraria within its display. By March, Easter lilies and spring bulbs will be added to transition the show through the Easter season.
