Do you have an eye for the unusual? During our 150 year history the Wellington Botanic Garden has collected some unusual and intriguing plants. Internationally renowned botanical artist Sue Wickison has an eye for the weird and wonderful and over the past few years has illustrated some of these oddities.

Come and see the Devil's Tongue, Amphorphophallus konjac, or the tiny Ceropegia woodii blown up 20 times larger than life. Enjoy the playful rhythm and lovely movement of the Mouse Plant, Arisarum proboscideum (pictured).

Many of these paintings have been exhibited at Kew Gardens and around the world - and we now have the collection together at the Treehouse Visitor Centre, Wellington Botanic Garden. Don't miss it!

Created in the traditional watercolour style of botanical art, these works are dramatic in colour and layout. Sue is a qualified scientific illustrator who has worked at Kew Gardens, collected orchids in the Solomon Islands, and won a gold medal from the Royal Horticultural Society in London.

These works are available for purchase.
