20 000 flowers used for a giant set of Olympic rings in Kew Gardens, London

Sports London, Great Britain - 18 April 2012

The flower display of the famous Olympics rings has been proudly unveiled in April 18, 2012 in Kew Gardens to celebrate the 100 day countdown to the London Olympics.

The rings, which are fifty metres long and contain 20,000 plants, will be in full bloom for the Games and will even be visible from the Heathrow flight path.

Planted five days ago by a team of volunteers and Kew staff, the colourful flowers consist of Viola ‘Light Blue’, Viola ‘Clear Yellow’, Viola ‘Black Delight’, apple mint (Mentha suaveolens) and Viola ‘Red Blotch’ plants.
