Topiaries at the Conservatory

06-02-2018 10-28-2018 10am–5pm daily

As families flock to the new Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children’s Garden, flocks of topiary animal families find their homes throughout the Conservatory’s indoor biomes and outdoor gardens. Animal topiaries of all shapes and sizes—from playful wolf cubs in the Desert to a full flamboyance of flamingos on the Grand Mallway—fill the Conservatory with fun for the whole family.

There are more than 90 topiaries on display throughout the Conservatory, including 75 flamingos in the Grand Mallway; three flamingos, three butterflies, a cardinal and pot-o-gold near The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation Children's Garden entrance; three dolphins in the Pacific Island Water Garden Biome; three wolves in the Desert Biome; two gorillas in the Rainforest Biome; and two elephants in the Himalayan Mountain Biome.
