Autumn colors are officially on display at Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. The Harvest display features exotic peacocks, mystical creatures and enchanting landscapes now through November 25.
The Gardens’ annual display was inspired and created by renowned designer Ed Libby and the Bellagio Horticulture team. The exhibit brings autumn to the Strip with 45,000 flowers glowing in the colors of the season. The flower-made peacocks are a nod to Libby’s travels to India. Symbolizing strength, beauty and renewal, male peacocks molt their tails at the end of each summer, similar to how trees lose their leaves in the fall.
The gorgeous journey begins in the East Garden with a 25-foot circular dome draped in gold and burgundy vines, tassels and yellow leaves. Four chandeliers, embellished with crystals and fall foliage hang above a walkway that ushers in guests to the centerpiece of the harvest season display.
In the West garden stand two vibrant 19-foot peacocks made entirely of flowers. The birds rest among two 24-foot trees. The peacock’s tails are made with over 14,000 chestnut, marigold and blue-colored preserved roses.
In addition to the new displays and foliage, some classic pieces return to the autumn installation including a 28-foot talking tree in the South Garden and three scarecrows as the guests are welcomed to the Conservatory. The scarecrows playfully surround the fresh cut flower-filled pumpkins, which are home to 1,200 cut flowers.
In the North Garden, three mythical creatures await guests with a fountain overtaken by fog and surrounded by two topiary acorns made from 1,700 flowers.
Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is complimentary to the public and open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Don’t miss this gorgeous autumn display through November 25.
