topiary sculpture in Atlanta Botanical Gardens
Imaginary Worlds, a New Kingdom of Plant Giants. is a landscape art installation of 28 living sculptures scattered throughout the garden.

Created in Canada by International Mosaiculture of Montreal, you’ll find four frolicking frogs, three playful gorillas,

and a pair of adorable orangutans.

They join a grazing unicorn, a friendly ogre, gigantic cobras, and beautiful butterflies.

The largest sculpture of them all is the 25-foot-tall Earth Goddess which, has become a permanent part in the Garden’s collection.
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.topiary horse at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens
“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.
