The road to the Emerald City in the timeless tale of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is paved in yellow – and in the “Sunflower Surprise” floral display, this is creatively reinterpreted as a profusion of sunflowers.

Amidst more than 10,000 sunflowers of various shapes and sizes, our heroine Dorothy and her faithful dog Toto find their way to the Wizard’s castle. Along the way, the pair meet allies-turned-loyal friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion.

Enhancing the fantastical elements of this enduring story of friendship are unusual sunflower varieties such as the fluffy ‘Teddy Bear’, rich red ‘Earthwalker’ and enormous ‘Uniflorus Giganteus’, which has bloomed as large as a human’s face.
