Superbloom Framed Print Print


In the spring of 2022, over 20 million seeds were sown in the Tower of London’s moat from carefully designed seed mixes. From June to September, the flower display erupted into new colours and patterns creating a dramatic and engaging experience to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen.

‘Superbloom’ was designed by Historic Royal Palaces, and their partners, to bring a spectacular natural beauty to the city which introduced a new biodiverse habitat for wildlife into what is usually an urban setting. It celebrated the value of nature for our wellbeing, as a spectacular, colourful, vibrant field of flowers filled the Tower’s moat.  Visitors could weave past flowering displays filled with colour and scent along a winding path. A specially commissioned sound installation and sculptural elements drew visitors in and to make them feel at home amongst the bees and butterflies.

In 1977, the Tower’s moat was used to mark HM The Queen’s Silver Jubilee with a garden display and ‘Superbloom’ is the first stage of installing a natural landscape in the moat in the heart of the City of London. It will see the moat become a welcoming new habitat and a green haven for pollinators, insects and seed-eating birds, something all of us at Moorcroft will enjoy seeing for years to come.

Inspired by ‘Superbloom’, designer Emma Bossons FRSA brought us her own interpretation of which wild flowers may bloom during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Emma’s flowers include Camomile, Coreopsis Tinctoria and Corncockle. There are also two different Poppies, one a soft pink and the other a bold red variety, reminiscent of the ceramic poppies that adorned the Tower of London’s moat in 2014 when it commemorated the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. Eight years on and Moorcroft’s own Superbloom vase is a colourful celebration of the life of our monarch, Her Majesty The Queen, who has ruled for 70 years since her ascension to the throne in 1952.

A framed print of Emma's Superbloom vase is still available to order.
