I am delighted to have a piece of work selected for inclusion in the RBGE Florilegium. The RBGE Florilegium was created to produce a visual record of the garden’s Living Collection and to reflect its scientific and horticultural interests.
This new work and others within the collection curated by Emma Nicolson, will be on display alongside works by contemporary artists such as Lee Mingwei, Lyndsay Mann and Annalee Davis in a biennial exhibition which, this year, takes place in Inverleith House, situated in the botanic garden, as part of the RBGE’s 350th birthday celebrations.
The exhibition was reviewed in the Scotsman Art Review: “A project at Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Gardens to create a florilegium – a collection of botanical art to mirror its collection of plants – has proved a blooming success, writes Susan Mansfield” Read the full review >>

Open daily from 10.30am, Inverleith House
Free entry. Please book your time slot to enter the Garden.
Last admission to the exhibition is 4.15pm in October and 3.15pm November – December.
This piece is currently know as Arisaema sp Nov. Its name is still to be revealed! This is the first illustrative documentation of this plant from the living collection at RGBE, I was delighted to be requested to illustrate it and am so happy that it is in the collection. Thanks so much for your help with this Alan Elliot!
