Be enchanted this autumn by Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden’s new seasonal display, “Deeper Into the Woods.” Their wondrous woods scene is open now through November 13. There are 59,950 fresh-cut carnations and 19 mushrooms set in the whimsical forest.
Designed by visionary, Ed Libby, along with help from the Bellagio’s Horticulture team, they conjured up a magical forest with bright floral mushroom topiaries, tall ginkgo trees and colorful dancing dragonflies hovering high above. 97 team members helped assemble this fairy-tale-like structure.
The dreamy forest consists of four beds that each depict a unique aspect of a “cozy autumn feeling.” Bordering the beds there are 1,998 ivy plants and 2,000 Chester Ferns, plus 44 different kinds of flowers, trees and shrubs.
Exploring ‘Deeper In the Woods’
In the center of the West bed, there lies a fairy house ringed with flowing water. The scene features snails with hand-painted shells, 800-pound gourds and floral mushrooms. An archway of golden leaves sprouting from towering ginkgo trees charm guests moseying through the immersive garden.
Looking over towards the North bed, guests see four grizzly bears playing adjacent to a petite collection of copper-stemmed blue flowers that form a waterfall. The bears wear playful smiles while teasing each other.
A large hollow tree with a pair of wooden doors lead guests into the forest on the East bed. Crowning the tree, there are bright coral-colored leaves, acorn-shaped lanterns and pumpkins and gourds of various sizes. The largest pumpkin in the display weighs 838 pounds.
A family of fiery foxes can be spotted in the display in the South bed. A pair of woodland foxes jest around in a sailboat with a golden leaf marked “B” for Bellagio in the koi pond. Another friendly fox rolls in the waterfall. Take a closer look and find the one slumbering under a giant mushroom. The display shows a total of six foxes. Adorned with radiant flowers, sitting above them is a tree house with a spiral staircase.
Other Woodland Creatures to Spot
Along with the dragonflies, grizzly bears and foxes, there are other adorable animals to admire in the new seasonal scene. Bring family and friends along to make a game out of finding them all.
Keep an eye out for the additional wildlife sprinkled throughout the floral creation including six ladybugs, five hedgehogs, three prairie dogs and two squirrels. Plus there are two magical fairies wandering about somewhere in the enchanted woods.
The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden display is open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week and free for guests to roam.
