Blue, gold and white adorn the Australian Capital Territory flag, with a depiction of our coat of arms and the Southern Cross. Admire the floral representation of the colours of the ACT as you walk by this display.

Australian Pop Art

Inspired by the work of iconic Australian artist Ken Done, the contrasting colours and geometric designs are reminiscent of works that sent ripples through the art community overseas, but with a decidedly Australian spin. The design pays homage to Done’s Collection, 2012.

Forming a sunset of colour, the Tulipa Kingsblood flourishes with rich cherry red tones strewn throughout this flowerbed.

Star Struck

From stars of the silver screen to our very own home-grown legends, pop icons of music and performance have been entertaining us for decades. Be star struck as you recognise unique hallmarks of style and familiar faces who have created the soundtracks to our lives.

The floral star of the show the Tulipa Monsella will dazzle you, showing off bright canary-yellow petals feathered with stripes of red – just as memorable as some of our pop icons.

Fictional Characters

Our childhood memories are often shaped by the fictional characters we invite into our homes. We emulate our favourite rose-eating dinosaur’s style by wearing a hat with teeth, or spend our evenings roaming the streets in our attempt to ‘catch them all’ – undeniably, these fictional characters have a life far beyond their origins.

While there’s no red roses in this garden to munch on, there is Parsley Curly Leaved. The green of this plant certainly helps to bring this character to life.

Superhero Alley

No, it’s not a bird, it’s not a plane, it’s superhero alley! Superheros have played an important role throughout the decades, reassuring the world with their superhuman abilities and heroic nature. From movies to comics, these characters divide and unite us. Who’s your favourite hero?

One of the few fringed varieties planted at Floriade is the Tulipa Curly Sue. The deep purple tones of this bloom are hard to miss, and we think these beauties are the hero in this flowerbed.

Kids Crazes

Nostalgic childhood memories can often be connected to the crazes we’ve seen define the decades, be it through a series of children’s books, an addictive game or fictional literature. The characters we come to love stay with us, and through generations to come.

In a wave of yellow, it’s fair to say that the Tulipa La Courtine stands out – both by quantity and beauty. The golden yellow petals embellished by fierce tones of red form just some of the crazes you’ll recognise.
