The Solar System is the inspiration for the Society's floral exhibit this year. Drawing on a vibrant array of chrysanthemums the exhibit seeks to explore the vast variety of planetary objects in our Solar System. The exhibit centres around a central golden display of "Sunny Euro" and "Yellow Lollipop" representing the sun itself. Then using the hues and colour combinations of over 25 cultivars, a selection of planets and moons are depicted around this central piece.
