Flower power: Blooms brighten our city and villages

Living Colour brings floral arrangements to local neighbourhoods, while kaleidoscopic displays in Sydney’s centre welcome employees returning to offices.

Our floral displays are brightening up local neighbourhoods this winter, bringing much needed joy to residents and workers.

Living Colour displays are usually concentrated in the city centre. But in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and more people working from home, we’ve brought our popular displays to local villages.

Living Colour floral displays in Surry Hills

Enjoy more than 17,700 plants in displays as part of this year’s Living Colour.

You can spot them across Darlinghurst, Kings Cross, Erskineville, Pyrmont and Surry Hills as well as the city centre.

Floral displays at St Vincent's Hospital

Floral displays outside St Vincent’s Hospital in Darlinghurst are brightening the days for healthcare workers on the frontline.

We use recycled water from Green Square to water the displays and all plants are cared for without pesticides.

Blooms in the city centre

Plant species include primula, pansy, English daisy, ornamental kale, sage, lavender, viola, wallflower heuchera, calendula, osteospermum, lemon button fern, ficus and peperomia.

A pop of colour in Martin Place

City locations include Sydney Town Hall, QVB, Martin Place, Castlereagh Street, Cathedral Square, Queens Square, Hyde Park Barracks and Customs House.

Flowers at Customs House

The Living Colour displays will run until Sunday 26 July.

When it's time for the temporary displays to be packed away, plants will be offered as a donation to community gardens, community groups, primary schools and employees at St Vincent’s Hospital.
