London celebrates the poinsettia, the UK’s number 1 Christmas houseplant, with an installation co-created by Stars for Europe and McQueens Flower School.
Highlighting the poinsettia’s Mexican heritage, ‘Dial-a-Star’ features an iconic London telephone box positioned within a landscape of white and red poinsettias, alongside some classically architectural cacti – joining to form the tricolour found within the Mexican flag. The title, ‘Dial-a-Star’ is a reference to the poinsettia’s other name of ‘Christmas Star’ as well as a playful nod to this plant’s popularity over the festive season.
Sophie Powell, Principal of McQueens Flower School says: ‘This beautiful piece with its amusing juxtaposition of classic London telephone box alongside the ubiquitous poinsettia, brings together two iconic objects from different worlds, communicating together at Christmas.’
‘Dial-a-Star, a Mexican wave for Poinsettia in Bethnal Green’ is available to be viewed at:
133-135 Bethnal Green Road
- Friday 23 November 4pm-7pm
- Saturday 24 November 10am-6pm
