A celebration of Australian flora

Florilegium, literally a gathering of flowers, was first used to describe a publication that focused on the beauty of plants, rather than their medicinal value.

In this beautiful exhibition, you'll learn more about Kew's connection with Australia through 89 works of art on plants growing in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney and the surrounding area. 

On display are the works of 64 Australian and international artists. It illustrates the richness and diversity of plants grown by the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust.

This is one of three exhibitions on Australian flora being held in the Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art.
