Known for the Edinburgh fringe festival, the Scottish capital city also hosts the largest street party in the world every New Year's Eve. It also has a rich floral history, with the world's oldest floral clock located in Princes Street Gardens (since 1903 for those wondering). A staggering castle sits on top of an extinct (and very windy) volcano, with beautiful flowers, fauna and plentiful tourists surrounding Arthur's Seat.

Flower of Edinburgh:
Lynchnis Viscera, commonly known as Sticky Catchfly, has grown on rocks in Holyrood Park for at least the last 400 years. Indeed, it was the favoured flower of King James VI - and is still the flower of Edinburgh today.
With 35,000 (!) plants used in the design, Edinburgh's floral clock flowers from July until October each year. It takes two gardeners five weeks to plant, and is then trimmed and cared for by one gardener for the rest of the season.
When full with plants and flowers, the clock hands weigh a combined 58kg. Commonly used plants (although it varies on a yearly basis) include Lobelia, Pyrethrum and Golden Moss - all contributing to the staggering amount of floral beauty on this unique clock.
In 2012 the clock was decorated to commemorate the Queen's Golden Jubilee, and each year it is decorated with a specific theme in mind. We can't wait to see the 2019 incarnation!
