Swathes of colourful wildflowers on site highway verges inspired by planting at the Olympic Park have been brightening up the landscape at Kings Hill and attracting numerous positive comments.
These ‘pictorial meadows’ were grown from special seed mixes containing both native and ornamental species, including fairy toad flax, field and Californian poppies, corn marigolds, black eyed Susan, cornflowers and cosmos.
Rich in nectar to attract bees, butterflies and other wildlife, the flowers have been planted in areas where there is good public access – alongside high footfall paths and roads.
Kings Hill resident John Keys said: “It is a pleasure to pass by these delightful beds of flowers and see bees and butterflies hovering and settling on the plants.
“As residents, we sometimes miss the truly delightful aspects of our community and these little havens of beauty will be appreciated by all who pass by and see them.”
The pictorial meadows at Kings Hill were commissioned by Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust UK
