A global collaboration representing a unique perspective on the breath-taking Cape fynbos

Telling stories through art

The Grootbos Florilegium brings together over 44 highly acclaimed local and international botanical artists who have a passion for telling stories through art. To create these marvellous art pieces, artists work from live specimens to gain a deep understanding of each plant’s unique anatomical structure before applying their unique drawing skills.

Meet our Artists

As we continue to fulfil our purpose, Grootbos is thrilled to share an exciting range of upcoming initiatives.
