Chennai, May 8 (ANI): A flower show featuring a wide variety of flowers, arranged in vases and various designs, was organised in Chennai.

Called as ‘Chennai Flower Show,’ the show opened at Young Men Christian Organisation (YMCA) Grounds in Royapettah on Friday and will continue for ten days.

More than 1000 varieties of flowers are on display at the show. The show featured both indigenous and imported varieties of flowers such as roses, carnations, tulips, lilies and many more.

Tulips were specially imported for the show.

The people were excited as such shows are mostly organised in hill stations and this was a novel experience for them.

“It is a wonderful experience coming here. We have never seen something like this earlier. If we go to Ooty or any other hill station, we get to see natural flowers. But here everything is put together,” said Roshana, a visitor at the show.

The special attraction at the show was the replica of the Taj Mahal created with 3000 roses of various colours.

“This the first time a flower show has been organised in Chennai. We have also displayed a dinosaur made out of on 1600 carnations, which are available only in Ooty. Apart from that, cup and saucer, panda bear, all made of vegetables are also on display. All the flowers used are natural and not artificial flowers,” said Nelliyappan, the organiser of the show.

The show is seen as a platform for floriculturists and prospective customers from parts of the state and outside. (ANI)
