Joint efforts of 500 students for the spectacular display in the coming Flower Show
Over 500 students from 17 schools joined the mosaiculture display today (March 3) at the Victoria Park, displaying co-operation and concerted efforts to beautify the Park with lovely insects.
The spectacular display will be exhibited in the coming Hong Kong Flower Show to be held from March 16 to 25, 2007.
The mosaiculture display entitled "Joyful World" features 12 delightful sculptures of bee, butterfly, snail, beetle, grasshopper, dragonfly, mantis, caterpillar, rainbow, tree, etc. They are created from some 50,000 colourful plants of various species, including Kalanchoe, Impatiens, Marigold, Golden Dewdrop, Cigar Flower, Marguerite, Petunia, Pansy, Dusty Miller, Red Border Weeds and Yellow-calico-plant. Some of the plant sculptures are also designed with movable parts, adding motion to the spectacular display.
The annual Hong Kong Flower Show, organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), will be held from March 16 to 25 from 9am to 9pm, with the Geranium as the show's theme flower.
