70 pink flamingos are taking over our Amphitheater Lawn this spring, and they’re joined by a pack of dogs, fluffle of rabbits, troop of monkeys, swarm of butterflies and a pod of dolphins! Flamboyance features more than 100 topiary animals presented in six groupings throughout the Garden. The largest of these groupings is the 70 life-sized flamingos filled with begonias – hence the name of the exhibit, Flamboyance, which runs at the Garden from May 1 through July 31.
Also part of the exhibit is a pair of beautiful, oversized butterfly wings for visitors to snap a photo in front of. You won’t be able to miss them, but just in case, they will be located in front of the SOAR – Tropical Butterflies exhibit. And while Flamboyance is free with Garden admission, there is one hidden topiary in our butterfly pavilion for those visiting that exhibit. Can you find it?
Please note, the topiaries in this exhibit are works of art and made from living plants, so please resist the urge to touch them and inform your little ones of the no-touch policy. Thank you!
Accessibility: Some areas of Flamboyance might be impassable for wheelchairs or those with mobility issues. We have a select amount of accessibility tickets available on Saturdays that include a 20-minute golf cart ride to see the topiaries. Accessibility tickets should be booked in advance by calling Guest Services at 424-452-0920. If these tickets have not been booked in advance, we will not be able to accommodate you due to limited availability.
