A Spanish Serenade with Sunflowers

1 – 30 October

This floral display takes inspiration from the region of Andalusia in southern Spain, with the cities of Seville, Granada, Malaga, Jaén and Córdoba being highlights. Sunflowers and other popular Spanish garden blooms like pelargonium, petunias and evergreen palms enhance interpretations of a Spanish courtyard garden; the olive trees that have shaped the Mediterranean world and that symbolise a culture stretching back a thousand years; the famous Patio de las Doncellas (The Courtyard of the Maidens) of the Real Alcázar palace in Seville; and the Fiesta de los Patios (Festival of the Patios), a cultural festival recognised by UNESCO that celebrates the unique patio houses of Córdoba. Andalusian arts and culture like the flamenco dance add to the Spanish flavour of the show.
