The 2014 Floria Putrajaya has chosen Begonia, the year’s flower theme, and an apt festival theme of “Mesmerising Colours.” Begonia, a flowering plant, comes in different captivating hues and colours. The genus begonia includes over 2,000 species and hybrids with diversified habitats and appearances.
More than 35 international participants including landscape architects, designers and growers from the UK, Australia, USA and Asian countries took part in this nine-day event from June 14, 2014. More than a million visitors thronged the flower show. The festival saw different zones earmarked for Grand Flower Beds, Showcase Gardens and Floral Pavilion. Obviously, the Grand Flower Beds became the highlight of the festival with theme flowers of begonias and an assortment of tropical blooms were on display. While the Showcase Gardens encompassed a variety of mix and match gardens presented by associations, government agencies, private sector landscape contractors, corporations, NGOs, schools and universities. Prizes for best gardens were given away. The Floral Pavilion was a temperature-controlled marquee that highlighted cut flowers’ arrangements that were displayed in assortments and colours. The displays were based on different themes and participation came from both local and international florists and landscape architects.
