Stockholm Trivia: City Flowers

The "official" Stockholm flowers are in full bloom! This year the theme for the late Spring flowers is the light Nordic summer nights using a base of white pansies with accents in purple and red, as well as white hyacinths and candy cane colored tulips. The city government has 5,762 square meters of space to plant flowers every year... in 706 urns and 27 flower beds, including the flower beds in the Mariatorget park just in front of the Rival Hotel (pictured here). So don't forget to admire the flowers while wandering through the city!
