It’s not the flowers that make this plant so colourful, it’s actually the magenta bracts.
Experience sights, scents and stories from the Mediterranean, California, South Africa and Western Australia in this breathtaking Biome.
With the sweet aromas of herbs in the air, you'll take an unforgettable journey through a paradise of brightly coloured flowers, gnarled olive trunks and bountiful vines.
“This Biome was our favourite, reminiscent of holidays on the continent and suggesting that some of those fruits, herbs and flowers we enjoy in Italy, Greece and Spain might just be grow-able here in the UK.”
Tim Shaw’s sculptures depict the myth of Dionysus, Greek god of wine and merriment, and his followers, the Maenads, who dance and writhe through the grapevines.
