New vase marking 2018 Plant of the Year to launch at 2019 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
The RHS has revealed a new limited edition vase from heritage art pottery specialist, Moorcroft.
The new vase – from Moorcroft designer Nicola Slaney – is called Chelsea’s Choice and celebrates the snow-white hydrangea that was awarded Plant of the Year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2018.
Chelsea’s Choice launches at the 2019 show, which takes place from May 21-25.
The vase is available as just 35 pieces and also comes in a new shape, inspired by the bulb itself with wide shoulders and body. Each of the 35 pieces will include Nicola’s designer monogram and full signature, along with Moorcroft and RHS’ backstamps.
At the RHS Chelsea Show the vase can be seen at the Moorcroft stand alongside its other collaborations with the RHS, including the recent RHS Beatrix Stanley Collection. The vase will also appear on the Moorcroft website from that week and at May Open Weekend at the Moorcroft Heritage Visitor Centre.
“With its inaugural use of a brand-new vase shape and the inspiration gained from an RHS award winning plant, this is a vase design that sets the bar high – and effortlessly meets it,” said Cathy Snow, licensing manager at the RHS. “This memorable design from a valued RHS partner will no doubt be a major talking point among all lovers of both art pottery – and beautiful plants – at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.”
