Pollination In The Calyx

On a basic level everybody understands that pollination is critical to not only the survival of plants but also to the entire ecosystem. If you ever wanted to see first-hand just how beautiful this wondrous natural phenomena is then make your way down to The Calyx in The Royal Botanic Gardens.

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 six metres high and spanning 50 metres, showcases the Pollination theme with Dichondra, Syngonium and Heuchera.

This is not just a simple exhibition which you walk through and consume in awe but you can make an entire day of it with the family thanks to The Calyx Cafe, where you can sit down for a light lunch with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

If Pollination piques your interest you could also head out afterwards to explore the 30 hectares of stunning grounds within The Royal Botanic Gardens.

Until Jul 29. The Calyx, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Mrs Macquaries Rd, Sydney. FREE. Info:
