Florilegium: Sydney’s painted garden

The Florilegium Society was formed in 2005 to create a unique collection of contemporary botanical paintings of some of the most significant plants in the living collections of the Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust.

The artists have gifted the botanical paintings to the Gardens in honour of the bicentenary of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

This exhibition celebrates the renaissance in the long tradition of botanic art and demonstrates the botanical and horticultural development of the Royal Botanic Garden and its links with domestic gardens and the public landscapes of NSW over 200 years from 1816 to 2016.
