Flowers from Canberra to feature at Queen's funeral

A haul of native Australian flowers from Canberra is en route to London for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Local Canberra florist Sue Irvine was tasked with assembling natives like gum nuts, wattle, and kangaroo paw to be used in wreaths at the Queen's funeral and at other engagements attended by Australian dignitaries. 

On a tight deadline, Sue managed to harvest a variety of wattle from a local Canberra property. 

Sue spoke with Anna Vidot on the Drive show.
