Flower colours for 2023

A Tricoloured Jewel Beetle collected by Alfred Russel Wallace is the inspiration for 2023 Usk in Bloom flower colours – orange, red and purple flowers with black, red and green foliage. Usk is celebrating the 200th aniversary of the birth of Alfred Russel Wallace who was born in Llanbadoc, across the river from Usk, in 1823. Wallace is the co-founder, with Charle Darwin, of the theory of natural selection.
