About 1000 plants were rehomed as the city centre’s flower displays received their latest seasonal refresh.
Canberrans lined up to give a new home to our outgoing plants at a giveaway in Garema Place on Thursday, 12 March.
Plants claimed by the public included Beyond Blues (plum), Mambos (blue), Cora Cascades (magenta), Streams (white, rose, lavender), Mystic Spires (Blue), Serenitas (purple), Frescos (pink and purple), Bellezas (white) and Pacific Sunrise and Sunsets.
The giveaway helped make way for the Authority’s planter boxes to be refreshed with new varieties of ornamental flowers and foliage to reflect the upcoming changing season.
The flower displays are an initiative of the City Renewal Authority, made possible through the City Centre Marketing and Improvements Levy.
