Royal Parks staff ensured their bedding schemes looked their best for last week’s Olympic cycling road races with specially created schemes.
The schemes included Tagetes patula 'Boy Orange', Alternanthera 'Royal Tapestry' and Ageratum spp.
"The Royal Parks and Pembroke Lodge Garden team celebrated this weekend’s historic races passing through Richmond Park with a flowery tribute," said assistant park manager Jo Scrivener.
"We wanted something special to mark the occasion. We’ve been proud to welcome cyclists and spectators from across the world and to have the chance to show off this glorious green landscape, right in the heart of London."
The men’s and women’s road cycling races passed through four parks, starting and finishing on the Mall in St James’s Park, travelling through Constitution Hill in Green Park, and looping out to Richmond Park and Bushy Park.
The Royal Parks are hosting 11 Olympic and Paralympic events across six parks throughout the London 2012 Games.
