So, what is a calyx and what does it mean? Read on to find out more:

The Calyx (pron. kal-iks) is defined as ‘the sepals of a flower, typically forming a whorl that encloses the petals and forms a protective layer around a flower in bud’.

The Calyx is the Garden’s new world-class attraction featuring horticultural exhibition that opened on 11 June 2016 to celebrate the Garden’s 200th Birthday.

  • Think of it as both a living art gallery and a theatrical experience that houses ever-changing living botanic exhibitions. The Calyx is a place to inspire and capture imagination, an enchanting and magical experience where plants will take you on a journey of discovery.
  • The Calyx is a contemporary and engaging experience set within the beauty and tradition of the Garden aiming to inspire a new generation of advocates for plants and the environment, transforming the view of the natural world.
  • The whole space is an integrated mix of indoor and outdoor areas with the exhibition changing dramatically each year, reinventing itself through emotively themed exhibitions changing every nine months.
  • Construction of the building took just over 11 months and the highest point inside the building is 5.5m!
