Bougainvillea is an ornamental plant which loves light and warmth. A flowering machine, it blooms in a fiery explosion of colour and is hardy, tough and versatile. A closer look reveals that its heart-shaped leaves are paper thin and its scrambling branches are full of thorns.

Near Wild Blooms explore strength and vulnerability and reflect upon Briar’s past (1), present (2) and future (3).

 

Available individually or as a triptych at the Melbourne International Flower & Garden Show, 21-25 March, in the Thou Art Mum exhibition section on the mezzanine floor of the Royal Exhibition Building.
