The Floral Patterns & Lifecycles Of Plants by Kate Snow
Structuring and organising information has always been a way to familiarise myself with new things. It’s how I understand and interact with information systems around me. It’s also how I learn new things. So after moving to a new house (in a new country) I realised I didn’t recognise half of the plants in my new garden nor did I know how or when to prune these unfamiliar plants. After researching these plants, I decided to create a visual guide to be able to reference in the future in order to maintain my garden.
This visualisation shows the diverse floral patterns (inflorescences) and seasonal lifecycles within a sample of plants common to Northern Europe. This new visualisation method will help gardening professionals and enthusiasts design and maintain their gardens by providing a clear overview of flowering and pruning periods, average height, seasonal foliage, and floral characteristics.
