Chosen Plants

The deadline of August the 4th is drawing closer; it’s the last day you can submit a native plant choice for the Botanical Art Worldwide exhibition.
If you would still like to submit a choice, we’ve compiled a list of all the species that have been chosen so far to make it slightly easier.

Take a look and see if your favourite plant is still available to paint. There’s still time to paint your choice as the deadline for actual digital submission is the 1st October to the 27th November 2017.

They are listed in 2 sections, Herbs/rushes/sedges and Trees/shrubs/climbers. Check carefully against the common name and the Latin name.
