If you are in Atlanta between now and October 31, take some time out to explore the largest living plant sculpture exhibition every displayed in the United States!
She, alone, is made up of 18,000 annuals.
“Each sculpture is a living, sophisticated evolution of the traditional ‘stuffed topiary technique,” states the Garden.
“Thousands of meticulously groomed annuals are planted into soil-and-sphagnum moss filled netting covering the steel forms – hidden works of artisanship themselves – to carpet the skeletons in colorful patterns.
Complex irrigation systems beneath the surface of the sculptures allow the plants to grow – and the creatures to flourish – in Atlanta’s summer heat.”
Last summer, at the same garden, was International Mosaiculture of Montreal’s first installation. This year’s exhibition features nearly 200,0000 plants.
