An artistic and enjoyable addition to parks, shopping malls, museums, fairgrounds, convention centers, bus stops, and wide variety of other locales, the Solarflora includes up to three modular leaves which feature a soft light for dramatic effect and are attached to a plant-like stalk. Each Solarflora is adjusted to the local geographic latitude so that it is angled towards the sun to capture the maximum available energy. The Solarflora has been tested to withstand hurricane force winds.
