More than 800 students build spectacular display for flower show (with photos)

     More than 800 students from 31 schools joined the activity Jockey Club Mosaiculture Display by Students at Victoria Park today (March 7). Under the guidance of some 120 green volunteers, they worked together to help put up the spectacular mosaiculture display "Gorgeous Plumes".

     The display is embellished with more than 30 000 colourful flowering plants of various species, including kalanchoe, carnation, chrysanthemum, myosotis and more.

     Featuring different birds with brilliant plumage, the display is a showcase of the vitality of avian life. The lovely plant sculptures include two proud peacocks fanning their tail feathers and a blissful pair of loving mandarin ducks. Also depicted are greater flamingos, red-crowned cranes, a Bali mynah, a golden pheasant and yellow-crowned bishops, presenting the gorgeous appearance of birds. Some of the sculptures are designed with movable parts to add motion to the spectacular display, which will be exhibited in the coming Hong Kong Flower Show.

     The flower show will be held for 10 days from March 20 to 29 from 9am to 9pm daily in Victoria Park, featuring "When Blossoms Dance" as the main theme and with the oncidium being the theme flower.

     In addition to displaying this year's theme flower and other flowering plants, the event will showcase a wide array of exquisite potted plants, beautiful floral arrangements and gorgeous landscape displays by local, Mainland and overseas organisations. There will also be commercial stalls selling flowers, horticultural products and fast food.

     A rich diversity of educational and recreational fringe activities will also be held for the enjoyment of visitors of all ages.
