Take home part of the Living Colour display and raise funds for BGF
Grab a spot of colour for your balcony, patio or backyard this weekend when the City of Sydney give away the last 5000 pots of flowers and herbs from the city's Living Colour display.
For the past nine weeks the annual summer Living Colour floral displays have transformed the city’s streets with their bright colours, but the end of the season gives residents the chance to grab a pot of marigolds, alyssium or chives, mint and sage.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore said the colourful floral displays have been extremely popular this year.
“Our bold designs, starring a giant pyramid of 2,000 brightly-coloured plants in Martin Place, have delighted people with their fun and eye-catching designs," said Moore.
“Now we’re giving them away so residents can brighten backyards and balconies with a bloom of summer colour.”
Plants will be given away on Sunday March 16 from 8am at St Mary's Cathedral Square on a first-come-first-serve basis in return for a gold coin donation, which will go to the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation.
